Hi we are the School Coucillors of Swanage Primary.
We work together to make the school a better place. Bringing sensible ideas from everyone, making it a more friendly school!
In previous years the School Councillors have achieved lots of things such as improving the litter situation in the playground by choosing the penguin bins, this has helped all children around the school to keep the playground litter free. Last year they helped to improve the behaviour during school time by discussing ideas with their classes and working with Mrs Hill, promoting the four school rules, be safe, be responsible, be respectful and be kind also dojo points, which is used in year 4, 5 and 6. We feel this has improved most people's behaviours (one of our School Councillors has already said that there is less bullying in the playground). They did lots of positive things that helped the school become a more friendly place.
This year we are looking to work with FOSP (Friends of Swanage Primary) to see where the money they have raised can best be used in the playground. We also want to talk with our classes to see which areas we (the School Councillors) want to focus on.
All the School Councillors want every one to look at the School Council board because there is lots of information about School Council. So when you go past please have a look at it.
We now have playground buddies to make sure everyone is safe, kind and happy! We have fifteen altogether and three on each day. We have thirteen from year 5 and two from year6! We also have five main leaders!
We are all very excited to help and improve the school this year.

The school council created a letter asking for raffle prizes for our school fete. A few of us delivered them to shops in the town. We were amazed by the shopkeepers generosity. A great big Thankyou. We are now looking forward to our fete on the 14 th July. Hope to see you there.
