Our school councillors are elected three times a year. This means that 6 children get to represent their class over the course of the year. One person is elected from the class vote and one person is elected by teacher choice. All children have to present to their class why they should be chosen and the final vote is cast in an election.
For Term 1 and 2 this year the children are focusing on organising the whole school children's questionnaire and deciding how the PTA fund-raised money could be spent in the school.
The councillors were lucky that they were presented their certificates by Bristol mayor Marvin Reese, who had come to visit Fonthill.
