This week our Pupil Council manned a stall at our very successful P1 Transition afternoon for new P1 parents/carers.
They were welcoming, polite and confident in talking to the parents, and were able to share some of the work they have done this year, as well as answering any questions the parents had.
We’d like to thank our Pupil Council for all they have done for our school this year, recognise their achievements, and share their successful planning and decison making, that has had such a positive impact on the school this session.
Our Pupil Council members are:
P4a- Louis Roberts
P4b- Eilidh Noronha
P5a- Kiana Ghomeshi
P5b- Jay Dunsmore
P6- Rose Overton
P6/7- Robin Brough
P7- Oliver Rumgay
Each P4-7 class held an election, with interested candidates presenting to their class why they thought they would be suitable for Pupil Council, and winners being decided by votes.
They have worked so hard this year to make decisions and plan for improvements, all to benefit our school.
