Yesterday we attended the 5-12 Year Olds Children’s Forum run by the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham to talk about SCUK and to spend a couple of hours working with the children who attended to help them improve upon their School Councillor Skills. 

What a fantastic morning!  The children were brilliant, they engaged with us and thoroughly enjoyed their training.  Mr Terry Purcell, the Pastoral Support Leader who accompanied the students from Marsh Green Primary School has already said

” The students had a wonderful time and I feel that it was the most beneficial forum we have been to.”

The session was for two hours and we packed a lot into that time! The students covered Basic School Council Skills, Communication and Decision Making as well as having time for some games that actively demonstrated and reinforced the subjects covered.  Each student went back to their school with a booklet to finish completing with the rest of their School Council and a new pen, and each accompanying teacher took a sample copy of our brand new Primary Handbook.

Thank you to Sem for leading the training with the students and to Kevin Donovan for inviting us.
