Parkside School has an active and enthusiastic school council. Representatives are elected by their class at the beginning of each academic year and meet each month with the Head teacher to discuss ways to further develop and improve the school.
Meet the School Council Representatives from each class.
Since the return to full school reopening in March the school council have been very busy. They decided their first job was to investigate the school meals on offer in an attempt to cut waste. Weekly meetings take place with Mrs Taylor, where the Chairperson and Vice-chairperson (Y6 councillors) lead the discussion and Y5 councillors take the minutes (Secretary) and check costs (Treasurer).
The children created a survey of the meals on offer and presented it to their class. After collating all the answers, they analysed which were the most or least popular choices. Liaising with Mrs Cleary, Parkside’s amazing cook, gave the children the opportunity to share their findings and suggest changes to the menu. They are now at the stage of finalising the menu for after half term.
The councillors are a pleasure to work with and they are doing a wonderful job. Watch this space for the updated menu.
Congratulations School Council Reps! The menu has been finalised and sent to parents. You worked so hard this term to make a difference. Now for the next task…
