School Council


Churwell Primary Visit

School council members from Blackgates were invited to Churwell Primary school to meet with other school council members from the Aspire schools (Churwell, Asquith, Fountain and Morley Victoria). The children had a fantastic morning and were given a tour of the school grounds upon arrival. Later in the morning, the children visited Daffil woods where they met the Churwell Action Group volunteers and created a journey stick as they walked through the park. School council members from Churwell were very friendly and helpful and the children from Blackgates set a fantastic example for our school.

Leeds Voice Summit

4 members of the school council visited the Civic Hall in Leeds. They got the chance to sit in the Council Chamber, take part in a ballot and meet Hannah the Children’s Mayor. The children also came back to school with lots of ideas for new events.

Here is what the children thought of the visit:

“I enjoyed sitting in the Council Chambers.”

“I really want to be the Children’s Mayor.”

“I want to take part in Takeover Day and be Mrs Coulson for the day.”
