As a school council we are here to listen and help out with your problems and try to improve Black Firs for everyone.
How does the school council work?
Each class has two class representatives (reps), a boy and a girl and they represent their year group in the meetings for the academic year.
When and where are the meetings?
We meet every Tuesday afternoon at 2.30pm with Mr Woods and if you have anything that you want us to talk about in the meeting, please let us know.
You can find out about what we talk about in the meetings through our school council assemblies and through talks we give to year groups.
Before a meeting, your class reps will ask you if there is anything you want them to bring up, and then we will tell you if we can do anything about it.
How can I have my say?
If you would like to bring something to the attention of the school council you can either:
- Tell your class rep directly
- Write it down on a piece of paper and put it in the suggestion box in your classroom
- Before each meeting, your class reps should check the suggestion boxes and bring any pieces of paper to the meeting
How can I find out what happened at the meeting?
Sometimes the class reps will find a time to talk to your class as a whole after the meetings to tell you about important issues. At other times, the whole School Council may talk to you in their Monday morning assembly. You can also read the minutes of the School Council meetings by looking on the School Council notice board in the hall, or looking on the School & Eco Council Blog.
