Our School Council is made up of children from each class. Our older councillors help with organising and running the School Council.
We held elections at the start of the year within our classes. This gave everyone that thought they would make a good School Council representative a fair chance of being elected and voted for by our classmates. The chosen representatives attend weekly meetings.
The chosen councillors for this year are:
Oak - Caidence and Finley
Willow - Raffy and Poppy
Seal - Luke and Amelia
Seahorse - Harry and Amelia
Shark - Leo and Freya
Buzzard - Teddy and Ava
Heron - Jack
Skylark - Leon and Caitlin
Badger - Scarlet and Isla
Fox - Curtis and Alice
Otter - Mia and Holly
Vixen Tor - Maya and Alfie V
Burrator - Alfie S and Oliver
Brentor - Sonny and Maya
Cotehele - Isabelle and Keira
Buckland Izzy and Keiran

One of our first jobs as School Council was to research charities that we would like to do some fundraising for over the year. We thought it would be a good idea to think of charities that are important to us and that impact the local community. We cam up with a long list and then held a vote for which charity we would like to choose.
This year, we have decided that our chosen charity will be Plymouth and Cornwall Cancer Fund.
We are looking forward to working with the charity, finding out more about their work and raising some money for them.
This is where you will find all of the up-to-date information of what we have been up to in our meetings and other things we have been doing. The School Council Corner section is also on our school newsletter and is written by our Year 6 representatives.
