Welcome to Llancarfan Primary School Council page.
Why do we have a school council?
At Llancarfan primary school, we believe the school council represents the whole school and the ideas and views of the pupils within Llancarfan Primary.
It is vital for them to be a part of our school community and that their thoughts and opinions are valued and can make a valid difference.
School Council Representatives will develop skills such as confidence, communication, negotiation and responsibility in sharing and expressing their own views and the views of their fellow pupils in who they represent.
It is an ideal opportunity for pupils to be actively involved in the way that the school is run by leading their very own School Council.
Who are the School Councillors?
Every year class elections are held so that two different representatives of boys and girls can be elected from year 1 to year 6.
Members of the newly elected School Council then elect a Chair and a Vice-Chair on a termly rotation.
What do the School Council Do?
Members of the School Council participate in discussions and votes and take on the role of reporting back to their classes of relevant information of what was discussed, outcomes, agendas and suggestions within the meetings held.
The School Council are there to encourage our children to have a “voice” and to share their opinions to help us in being “The best we can be.”
Members meet fortnightly with Mr Smith and Mrs Smith.
Children In Need 2018
This year the School Council voted for ‘Wear your own Pyjama Day’ and to hold a cake sale in aid of Children In Need.
All the children (and staff) had a fantastic day dressed in their pyjamas, slippers and dressing gowns and thoroughly enjoyed the cake sale and all the delicious cakes brought in. YUMMMM!!
With donations from Pyjama Day and the cake sale, we raised an AMAZING £125.00
The School Council would like to thank everyone for the support they showed on Friday for ‘Children In Need’ and for all the donations made.
School Council members worked very hard at selling Poppies and other Poppy related merchandise at break times, during the week beginning 5th November.
We raised a fantastic £73.04 for his years Poppy Appeal.
Thank you ALL for your continuing support and donations!!!
School Council Year 5 and Year 6 members were invited on a fantastic day trip to the Houses of Parliament and what an amazing trip it was. We were lucky enough to meet our local MP and Secretary of State for Wales Mr Alun Cairns, where we had the opportunity to have a question and answer session with him and find out lots of interesting facts about him and his career.
We were able to find out lots of fascinating information about what happens inside the House of Commons and the House of Lords and how new laws are passed and that just like us as a school council, a vote is needed when passing a new idea or law.
Whilst at the House of Parliament we were also invited to sit in the public gallery of the House of Commons to watch Teresa May, Jeremy Corbyn and a full house of MPs debate the very talked about Brexit negotiations.
It was an incredible day with lots to see and a fantastic opportunity for us to be part of.
MacMillan Coffee Morning.
On the 28th September the School Council helped to host and serve the MacMillan Coffee Morning where we raised as a school an amazing £105.00
A very big Thankyou to all the children in the School and parents who helped to donate and bake some delicious cakes.
