What is Margaret Wix School Council?
At Margaret Wix we have an elected School Council. Each class elects two children every term to be their class representative. The representatives are there to be the voices of the class and attend School Council meetings.
The School Council meet every half term and discuss ideas for improving the school. They also try to raise money for good causes.
If you are a member of Margaret Wix Primary School and you have an idea that you would like the School Council to discuss; then write it on a post-it note and put it on the display board by the front office.
Below are our new school representative for Spring term 2020. We have 2 representatives per class, congratulations to the following pupils:

19.9.19- School Council Meeting
Today in our School Council meeting, we discussed our possible next event. We had a split decision between, wearing pink for breast cancer awareness and wearing yellow to raise awareness of mental health.
There were some great arguments, but finally we voted and wearing pink for breast cancer awareness was the final decision.
This year we have introduced Eco Council to Margaret Wix. We have done this to raise awareness across the school so that the children take responsibility for their actions.
Our Eco Council meetings take place every two weeks in the school library and we have one representative per class who is passionate to make Margaret Wix greener.
A huge congratulations to our elected Eco council representatives:

This week we made signs to remind people to turn lights off when they are not in use.
We will place these round the school as a fun reminder.
10.10.19 - Eco Council Meeting
Today in our Eco Council meeting, we assigned posters for saving energy and plastic reduction.
We discussed that the children need to make sure every classroom has got a plastic recycling box.
On 'No Pens Day' we discussed what event we could hold to raise awareness on the effect of recycling.
We decided that every child will be asked to bring in a piece of plastic and in the hall every piece of plastic will be joined together to make a sea creature.
26.9.19 - Eco Council Meeting
Today in our Eco Council meeting, we discussed what areas of 'green living' we wanted to focus on.
The two areas agreed on were plastic reduction and energy saving.
We discussed what both these areas meant and what we could do to reduce our plastic and energy use.
