Pupil Council Icon

Pupil Council

At Mount Cameron we have a Pupil Council.

All classes, from Primary 1 to Primary 7, are represented on the Council. Children are voted on to the Pupil Council by members of their class. The Council meets in the school staffroom every Friday afternoon. The Council has a Chairperson who organises the meetings and minutes.

So far, the Council has been involved in our ‘Positive Play‘ in the playground, the organisation of a school ‘Star Spot’ award for a pupil from each class, and in the refurbishment of the school toilets.

At the moment the Pupil Councillors are working on a pilot project for soft cushions on the pupil chairs in the school!

There is more news on the Pupil Council page.

We have lots of playground equipment for our children.

There are large magnetic play panels (chess, snakes and ladders, draughts and connect a row) on the outside walls of the school. Every class has a turn of a giant ‘Mega Line Up Four’ game. Every class also has a play box with a parachute, beanbags, skittles, ‘a Big Hand Tennis’ set, a ‘Throw a Hoop’ set, a spinning top, a twirling ribbon, quoits and balls.

An ‘Active Breaks’ worker helps our children to learn play and social skills, both during and after breaks. She also works on school projects with our children, organising activities suggested by our children.
