“Hi my name is Dunia Hayderi. I am a Year 6 student. I am currently part of the Carlton School Council. Each year an election takes place for children in Years 2-5, where children in those years can participate and all they need to do is write a short explanation on what they would do for their class by writing a manifesto. A meeting will be held every half term for the chosen representatives to discuss their class opinions and point of views of how we can change the school in a better way. Each class will nominate a girl and a boy to become their class’s school councillors. Votes will be counted by the Year 6s and overseen by the chair governor. The results will be announced in assembly. Year 5 school councillors will continue on as the Year 6 school councillors, this is why Year 6s don’t have a vote.
