THE work of the school council at Badshot Lea Village Infant School has been celebrated at a special assembly.

Pupils voted for their classmates to represent them at the council at the start of the year. With the young members of the school council nearing the end of their term, the school wanted to share their accomplishments with their fellow students.

Parents were invited to attend the event at the school on February 12 to find out more about what the school council has been involved in throughout the year.

The assembly highlighted that the council had represented the school at community events, attended the Gostrey Meadow Remembrance service, and raised money for Children in Need.

Responsibilities of the council involved choosing which charities the school supported, deciding how the school raised money, and helping headteacher Gemma Ball with the school improvement plan.

Mrs Ball said: “We’re very proud of them and they were very proud of themselves.”
