Welcome to the School Council!
Who are we?
The School Council is elected every year in the Autumn term. This year each candidate did a presentation sharing their personal qualities with their class . All pupils in Year 1 and 2 voted and 2 pupils were elected to represent each class.
Some of our strengths included:
good listening, setting good examples of behaviour, being kind, being good at turn taking, understanding that we are all different and can have different opinions.
What do we do?
We meet regularly to discuss a range of topics. We help to make and implement decisions to ensure that William Lilley School is the best it can possibly be.
Sometimes we represent the school at events such as on Armistice Day, interviewing staff and at
tending council meetings.
The School Parliament
What is it?
Two pupils from the William Lilley School Council meet once per half term with representatives from other schools within the local area.

This year the council have two main projects.
1) To support a local food bank
2) To raise funds to have community bench in the local area
Work completed so far...

Pupils are invited to bring in a non perishable food donation which the council will donate to the local food bank.
The School Parliament has written to the council who have agreed to a bench being placed in the community. Fund raising events will take place in the Spring and Summer terms.
