Year Six believes in a democratic system

This week, year six held an election to determine who would represent our classroom for the student council. We learned that a school council can provide a meaningful way in which they can voice their opinions and share their viewpoints on issues that can help improve our school.

 

Participating in a whole class vote allowed our students to feel that they had a say in some of the decisions that affected their lives. Most importantly, year six did a wonderful job preparing and delivering their speeches in a public speaking format, demonstrated the ability to offer their audience reasonable solutions to issues that may arise in the near future and provided their peers some ideas on how to improve the time we spend in school.

 

Year six believe that our student council is an excellent way to learn because it teaches the students in St. Mary’s and St. Pancras about democracy, local and global citizenship and accountability.
