Rockmount’s School Council team is pleased to announce that elections for the new school councillors for the 2017/18 academic year were conducted successfully. The new school councillors will be announced in achievement assemblies and we will be aiming to conduct our first meeting on Friday 6th October 2017. Our next step forward is to conduct our internal elections to fill the posts of President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and Public Relations Officer. The appointed members will form the School Council Executive.
Last year our school councillors worked diligently to ensure that their Litter Project was a success. It was indeed, as several schools in the Borough of Croydon participated. Members of the local authority and staff from our Member of Parliament Steve Reed’s office judged and shortlisted 25 posters. Out of those 25, the top 3 were selected. The design of the winning poster will be printed and displayed on Veolia’s sanitary vehicles that work in Croydon.
The prize giving ceremony for the Litter Project took place at Rockmount on Friday 20th October 2017.
Steve Reed MP, Pat Ryan, our local Councillor and representatives from Veolia announced and presented certificates to the winners of the borough wide competition.
We would like to congratulate the following pupils who were awarded winner and commendation certificates.
