School Councils

This term we have started school councils, we have had our first few meetings already! We learned about each other before deciding our roles. Our roles we choose for each member were chair person, security, time keeper, facilitator, reporter and anything else we thought we needed. 

Here are our School Councils 
Eco Warriors 
Press Gang 
Gardening Gang 
Healthy Heroes
Sports Superstars
     Globe Trotters     

                                    A little bit about our councils                                        
  Mrs Little and the Eco Warriors

   In the Eco Warriors Council we will be looking at ways we can help look after the planet. We're starting to learn about earth hour when people turn off their lights for an hour. To help save the planet we're entering a competition for earth hour where you design a poster to represent earth hour. If you win your poster will be put up around swimming pools and other public places in West Dunbartonshire. 

Miss Hampson and the Press Gang 

In the Press Gang Council we will be learning all about the world of newspapers, journalism and how to keep the local community updated on what's happening in our school. We are hopping to start off by speaking to some journalists about their work. After that we can hopefully write some articles for the local newspapers so we are able to tell the community what is happening in Gartocharn Primary School.

 Mrs Curry and the Gardening Gang

In the gardening Gang Council we are going to be taking care of the outside surroundings of the school. We are planning to finish the green house and improve the look of the school flower beds. We will be weeding, cutting back unwanted growth, creating planters so the school entrance looks good, We will also learn how to plant seeds.

Mrs Stoddart and the Healthy Heroes 

In the Healthy Heroes Council we will be learning how to keep the school a healthy place. Next week we are going to be health detectives and find how how healthy our school really is. From there we will spend each week under taking activities that focus on keeping a healthy lifestyle. 

    Mr McDonald and the Sports Superstars

In the Sports Superstars Council we are going to be organizing some sports and fun activities for the school. This will help us keep nice and active. We are hoping to plan some sporting activities and events in the coming months and we will do this through our school council. 

Mrs Elder and the Globetrotters

In the Globetrotters we will be working to keep strong links between local and international education. We are hoping to keep in touch with schools across the water and take part in major events that affect international schools such as Comic Relief.

We will keep everyone updated on the progress of the Pupil Councils via the school blogs.
