Inspired by a visit to Parliament, school councillors at Milton CofE Primary School worked with their local Parish Council, to learn more about democratic processses. They organised a ballot to decide future improvements to their school.
School councillors at Thurton CofE Primary School supported the idea of learning outside, even during the winter, and kept parents and students informed about the changes in their school newsletter, and through an article for the local newspaper.
Students from Ashleigh C of E Primary School spent time with police officers and speed cameras, on a road outside their school, as a part of a larger campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of speeding.
School councillors at Woolwich Polytechnic campaigned and presented their worries and concerns about the roads that they use every day to the Highways Committee and were able to change the layout, speed and areas for pedestrians to cross in their local area.
Students at this school aim to tackle poverty in and around their school. They set up a school-based food bank and work in partnership with local charities and a food supply agency to distribute food packs to their community.
