At Abbott, every class from Year 1 to Year 6 has two democratically elected school council members. All children throughout the school were given the opportunity to nominate themselves and present a nomination speech to their peers. Each class then exercised their right to vote by selecting a male and female class representative. The two children with the most votes became our school council members.
As a council, the children are learning how to hold council meetings and share ideas whilst respecting the opinions and beliefs of others. As the children develop these skills, they will begin to take minutes and plan the implementation of their ideas.
Our school council members will always be available for children to voice their opinions and share their ideas so that we can all work together to ensure that Abbott continues to be a wonderful place for everyone.
