Hopton School Council is made up of one pupil from each class. They hold class council meetings with their class, collecting ideas and issues from their peers. They then meet at least once a half term with Miss Henderson, where they share their ideas with the rest of the school council members. They try to come up with solutions to problems and agree on what action should be taken in the future.
Our Key Stage 2 School Council members went to Dewsbury Town Hall to meet the Mayor of Kirklees and the Deputy Mayor on the 26th November. They had a great time experiencing what a council meeting would be like and getting to ask lots of probing questions.
