Rockmount Primary School

All Can Achieve

School Council

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.

The Litter Project

 

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.

We are very proud of our School Council in their efforts to raise awareness about the litter problem in our community and in making a collaborated effort to take action!

 

 

Our School Council continues to work on developing our children’s citizenship and democratic values. To reinforce these important core principles our school councillors had the opportunity to visit the Houses of Parliament on Monday 16th January. It was a first time experience for many of our young councillors but proved to be very interesting and informative. In addition to seeing and learning important facts about the history of governance in Great Britain our councillors were also fortunate to enter the House of Lords and the House of Commons.
