School Council Election Day 2023!

School Council Elections 2023!

It's been a nerve wracking time this last week for some of our Key Stage 2 students at Thorn, as they have applied to be part of our student council. A student council works hard to make positive changes for the pupils and to the school environment whilst taking the viewpoints of everybody on board.


So the types of students Thorn's School Council needs are motivated, resilient, good team players and passionate.


We had a HUGE amount of applications, which was fantastic to see, with some really brilliant thoughts and ideas. Unfortunately there can only be two children from each class so it was put to a whole school vote. 


Election day was buzzing as all Key Stage 2 children turned up to vote for their class representatives, it was a great turn out. 


The votes are in and the results are as follows:

3D - Lexi & Jessica

3/4L - Jack & Tanner

4B - Eli & Rosemary

5S - Delilah & Leo

5F - Cornelia & Finleigh

6W - Arisha & Alfie


Well done to everybody that took part - you are al superstars and look forward to seeing you at future events. 


Keep an eye out for our introduction page coming soon.
