School Council

The School Council continues to play an important part in the running of Markyate Village school. It is made up of two representatives from each year group and the School Council meets regularly to discuss important issues. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.

Our representatives for 2022/2023 are: Emilie G, Stefan P, Nadeem I, Mimi R, Sam, H, Layla R, Henry H, Grace M, Piper M, Kimberly R, Emily B, Emma M, Alfie M, Louie N and Charlie C. 

The School Council add another platform for listening to our community. Our pupils write a letter of application to be a member of the School Council and are then voted in by their peers. All members are passionate about making our community the best that it can be. The views of our children are important to us and the School Council members are able to collect the ideas and information from their classes to share with each other and the leaders in school. They are strongly encouraged to bring solutions with them when issues have been raised by their classmates. School Council members are also our eyes and ears – they promote the issues that are most relevant to our pupils at the time. They are also passionate about listening to children and can even be found conducting questionnaires on the playground and in the dining room!

Members of the School Council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning discos, writing newspaper articles, or meeting with catering staff and of course interviewing new members of staff! It enables children to get their voice heard and contribute to the discussion making process along with staff.

Thank you to the School Council for decorating the school tree in the hall. They did a great job!

Children in Need 2022

Well done to the School Council for organising our Pudsey-themed dress up day. After judging in each class, a winner was chosen. It was very difficult for the School Council to decide who would receive the certificate!

School Council lead the school on recycling initiative with Dacorum Borough Council

On Wednesday 29th September 2021, Joanna from Dacorum Borough Council visited school and led an assembly about litter and the importance of recycling. The children were interested to hear about the journey of litter and where our rubbish ends up. The School Council are running an initiative called 'Monsters on a Mission'. This involves classes taking responsibility for food caddies so that we can recycle more food waste in our school.

Please watch this space for further updates from the School Council on this important school   initiative, which will be run throughout the school year.
