We launched our Ewanrigg Junior School
Council in 2006 and we are delighted with
the maturity shown by our councillors.
Each class votes for two councillors, who
then meet regularly to discuss school
There is a Chair to the School Council, a
Treasurer and a Minute Secretary who has to
take notes and distribute them to all of the
classes, the staff room and to Miss Craig.
School councillors report to Miss Bowman.
At Ewanrigg Junior School, each class has
two class councillors, a girl and a boy that
has been voted onto the school council. They
have meetings in school that allows them to
talk to their class and put forward any of
the children's ideas for what they would
like to see in school. The councillors also
get the chance to meet with other Maryport
schools in our joint school council.
The joint school council is a brilliant
opportunity for our children to meet with
other councillors and practise debating
their ideas on how to improve our schools
We asked some of our class councillors what
it is like to be on the school council and
what happens in our joint school council
meetings. Click on the folders below to read
what they said.
