We are very proud to have our very own school parliament. This is an opportunity to hear the views of all pupils through a democratic process.
Delta is proud to have their very own school parliament! This is an opportunity to hear the views of all pupils through a democratic process.
Each class has a class councillor. The councillors are responsible for collecting the views and issues raised in their classes. In Year Six, instead of councillors, there are two MPs (Members of Parliament) who lead their council in bi-weekly meetings. They take minutes and chair the meeting, supported by the Deputy Headteacher. The MPs then meet with the Headteacher each half term and announce their outcomes in assembly.
A special 'Polling Day' takes place to vote for the councillors and MPs children have to visit the school hall to vote on ballot papers and enter into a box. This all took place in September.
The MSPs and Cabinet Members are extremely proud to be selected. They feel they speak for the children, and are excellent role models for the school. They have to be reliable, demonstrate the Delta Values, and may also give up some of their own time to volunteer for this position.
