School Council

The school council at Rack House Primary School meet monthly to discuss issues relevant to themselves and their peers. Two children are elected annually from each year group, starting from year one. At present the school councillors are in the process of sponsoring a child from India and their next challenge is to come up with some ideas about how they can raise the money for this sponsorship.
