At Langold Dyscarr Community School we elect a school council each year. The children in each class are given the opportunity to become a councillor. They must give a speech to their class explaining why they would make a good councillor. Afterwards, the children in the class take part in a secret ballot to elect a boy and girl representative. This is an excellent opportunity for us to teach the children about democracy.
Our council represent the views of all the pupils and work hard to improve the school. The children are currently working on anti-bullying.
The School Council went to London with Miss Coupe, Mrs Silk, Mrs Wood, Mrs Merrils and Marcus, from NOW Church last Wednesday. They had a fantastic day touring the Houses of Parliament, where they bumped into John Mann MP who talked to them about the history of the Houses of Parliament. After lunch, with lots of other Worksop children, they exited the Houses of Parliament via the ‘James Bond’ exit and walked over Westminster Bridge for a fantastic flight on the London Eye.
