Every year, the children of Coppull Parish choose two School Councillors from Year 1-6 to represent their classes at School Council meetings, which are led by Mrs Jones and Mrs Lock. The election process involves candidates applying for this important role through a presentation to their classmates, which is followed by hustings and a secret ballot.
This year, we invited Councillor Julia Berry, of the Coppull ward into a school assembly to explain the democratic process to our children and instill on them the importance of voting in elections and choosing candidates of good character, who represent your views. The children were interested to learn about her role and are keen to be involved in voting for their new School Councillors.
Good luck to everyone who applies to be a School Councillor this year!
