Here are our 2018 School Council. Pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 were elected by their peers to represent their class on the School Council.
Miss Braid and Mrs Wilkie have recently taken over the role of being the link teachers for the School Council, they are looking forward to working with the children during the course of year.
We are pleased to introduce the following children who were elected to carry out various roles within the School Council:
Chairperson ~ Harrison Year 6
Vice Chairperson ~ Chloe Year 6
Minutes Secretary ~ Alfie Year 5
Treasurer ~ Owen Year 3
The School Council have had a busy year leading the way on "Pupil Voice' initiatives that have had a big impact on our school. Here are some of their successful ventures:
Our latest initiative involves Mountain Lane being part of an exciting new community school council in the Buckley and Mynydd Isa Consortium. This community school council has been given a very important title - 'The Successful Futures Cluster Group'. Every school in the consortium has nominated two pupil delegates to be part of this group. The pupils at Mountain Lane who have been given this important role are Erin and Alfie.
The first community group project was to identify a negative issue in the community of Buckley and Mynydd Isa. Our School Council members were given the task of teaching a lesson to their class in order to identify ideas for community problems. All the lessons ended with a class vote. The School Council pupils then brought their results back to the meeting where Harrison did a tally of the results. Here are some photographs:
