We launched our Ewanrigg Junior School Council in 2006 and we are delighted with the maturity shown by our councillors.

Each class votes for two councillors, who then meet regularly to discuss school matters.

There is a Chair to the School Council, a Treasurer and a Minute Secretary who has to take notes and distribute them to all of the classes, the staff room and to Miss Craig.

School councillors report to Miss Bowman.

At Ewanrigg Junior School, each class has two class councillors, a girl and a boy that has been voted onto the school council. They have meetings in school that allows them to talk to their class and put forward any of the children's ideas for what they would like to see in school. The councillors also get the chance to meet with other Maryport schools in our joint school council.

The joint school council is a brilliant opportunity for our children to meet with other councillors and practise debating their ideas on how to improve our schools and community.

We asked some of our class councillors what it is like to be on the school council and what happens in our joint school council meetings. Click on the folders below to read what they said.
