Everyone was in attendance today for our second pupil council meeting!
Firstly, Mrs Thomson asked us to start thinking about ideas for planning Children In Need Day. We will discuss our ideas at our next meeting.
Next we discussed the use of homework at Millbank Primary School. Our task before our next meeting is to ask our classmates what they think of homework and note down our classmates opinions. Some of our older pupil council reps will buddy up with the younger reps to help them gather this information in their class.
Lastly we worked in groups to create mind-maps of all the skills we might need to use as a pupil council rep. We came up with lots of skills, such as, listening, writing, optimism, co-operation, perseverance, responsibility, artistic skills, presenting, positivity, communication, reading and showing respect to others.
We are looking forward to our next meeting where we can share ideas and plan Children In Need Day, as well as discuss school pupils’ opinions on homework.
