Woodlea Junior School are very proud of their school council. There are two representative from each class across the school. The children who wish to be voted onto the School Council create a poster, saying why they would be a good council member for their class. Following this the children each have the opportunity to speak infront of their class and say what they promise to do, should they be voted onto the school council. Each child in the class has two votes and chooses who they would like to represent their class.
The successful children who are voted onto the School Council are announced in a special assembly. This year were were very fortunate to have the MP Lorraine Fullbrook to present our council members with their badges.
