School Council is an important part of life here at Bankwood. At the beginning of the year, two children from each class are democratically voted for by their peers to be representatives of the class. Often, for the older children, speeches are given and campaigning happens so that each voter makes a good choice. When the Council are selected, they meet regularly with Mrs Witten to discuss happenings at school, share their thoughts about life at Bankwood and make decisions about the future of the school. They are an important part of the school process and allow us teachers to make informed choices.
