Our new school councillors are off to a great start. They began with a tour of classes 5 and 6 to introduce themselves to their peers and explain their role and aims as well as to the rest of the school during assembly.
Their first job as school councillors was to politely greet our visitors to the Harvest Festival. They did this extremely well demonstrating the high standard of politeness we expect at Ryecroft.
They came along to our successful ‘Barn Dance’ discos to help provide the drinks and snacks to all the children. They also did a fantastic job of dancing with the little ones and helping the Y1’s to dance a traditional barn dance!
At their first meeting they discussed what it means to be a school councillor and wrote their own statements to go on our School Council board situated on the corridor. Please come along and have a look to see what our councillors have been up to.
The councillors are continuing a successful award initiative started by our school councillors last year. Each councillor will give an award every playtime to a child they feel has demonstrated good manners, outstanding politeness and courteous conduct. Children love to receive these awards which encourages happier playtimes. Our eagle eyed councillors are on the look out to present their next award!
What a brilliant start school councillors in your new role! Keep up the good work!
