Democracy at Wensum has had a reboot. Under the banner of ‘a strong voice for young people’ (an immediate priority for Norwich City Council through their ambitious 2040 City Vision) democracy is alive and well at our school. To find out more about how it is organised; read meeting minutes and see photos of us at work, please visit the Democracy page on the school website or click here.
School council told Karen from NORSE what they thought of our new School diner menu and helped shape the menu for the Spring term. Although Tyler voted for a ‘fast food Friday’ we all discussed healthy eating and just opted on including ketchup with our fish and chips instead! As of Monday, jacket spuds will have the choice of cheese, beans or tuna daily!
Over the past few days Year 6’s have been running elections to find out who will be the Year 6 representatives for the School Council and Eco Council.
With over 20 candidates for two school council positions it was going to be a well fought battle for the right to represent the year group. All the candidates gave excellent speeches about why they should be selected and then children were given the chance to vote. This meant that a fair chance was given to all.
The same process was repeated for the Eco Council. 8 Children put themselves forward with two places available.
After counting the votes and making sure that it was a fair vote we came to the conclusion that the winning candidates were as follows:
School Council Reps:
James – Speke Class
Tom P – Sycamore Class
Eco Council Reps:
Faith – Speke Class
Oliver – Sycamore Class
Thank you to all the children that took the time and effort to prepare speeches, talk in front of all of Year 6 and made it a great election event.
