The School Council: 2018 - 19
Quarry Mount School council representatives have been chosen for this this academic year from years 1-6. Each candiate gave a short presentation to their class sharing the reasons they would make a good representative and then children voted for the boy and girl that they wanted to represent their class.
Now they have been elected the school councillors will attend meetings with Miss Meiklejohn, to discuss what changes and improvements the children would like to take place at Quarry Mount.
School councillors also help to organise charity events, decide the best way to spend our fundraising and even get involved in the process of interviewing staff!
This year, for Red Nose Day the School Council representatives decided to run a 'Red Nose' design competition. The competition was open to all children across KS1 and KS2. Children donated 50p-£1 to enter the competition, we raised a total of £35.40 for Comic Relief. Thank you to everyone who took part. The representatives took on the role of judges, choosing a winner and runner up from KS1 and KS2. Congratulations to; Yusra, Osama, Max and Hawar!

During play times the representatives spoke with their peers to ascertain the following:
