The School Council 2021-2022

At Russell Lower School, we have a democratically elected School Council, comprised of two representatives from each class from Year 1 to Year 4.  The school council meets regularly with Mrs Nilletti, whereby, the pupil voice, thoughts and ideas from each class are shared and important issues relating to school life at Russell Lower are discussed.

This year the main focus of the School Council is to become an Eco-School, with the aim for Russell Lower to be awarded the Eco- Schools Green Flag accreditation in July 2022. Eco- Schools is a child led, educational program, whereby, children drive environmental action and change across the school community.

As a School Council we will be completing a 7 step framework that consists of:

  • Forming an Eco-Committee (Our School Council)
  • Carrying out an environmental review of the school
  • Forming an action plan to bring about environmental action and change at Russell Lower
  • Making curriculum links
  • Informing and involving the school community in our Eco-Schools work
  • Monitoring and evaluating the impact of the action plan
  • And finally, creating a school Eco-Code.

As a school council we are very excited about working with the whole school community to achieve our Eco- Schools Green flag and Russell Lower becoming a greener and more environmentally friendly school. 

We look forward to starting work on our action plan and updating you all on our progress.
