Some eco suggestions from classes were passed on to the ECO reps
There is no seets in the music room because it would be too cramped
P6 and P7 are not banned from the infant area of the playground but are not allowed to run there and are discouraged from playing too much with the younger children – we must allow the younger children to be more independent
We decided to have a Kilt day on November 28th and raise money for charity – which charity will be decided at the next meeting.
Items for the next agenda
Themes for school meals, Helpers game, Toys for the playground,
Playground play leaders, Middle school toilets.
It is now nearly the end of the session and we need to start thinking about the reps for next session. All elections will take place next week.
Some class reps wish to continue for a second session which is OK under our constitution.
Primary 6 and primary 7 classes next session should also elect the ECO reps for 2008-2009.
There shall be approximately 14 members on the Pupil Council. This will break into 2 sub committees – 1 class rep per class P3-P6 and 8 ECO members. The ECO members will be elected from the P6 and P7 classes – 2 from p6 and 6 from P7, including two junior road safety officers.
Our next meeting will be a social event to meet the new members.
Today we discussed
The possibility of a new baskerball net
Can we come into school with no bells ringing

A pet day
Water fountain in upper area
A cheerleading club
The pta have organised a wildlife photography competition and the p7’s are planning some more before the end of term.
A pet day would not be a good idea as many children have allergies.
We voted we do not need another water fountain in the upper area.
We voted not to get a cheerleading club.
The PTA kindly gave us £110 to spend on some wildlife signs for the playground we chose the signs on page 48.Look at our notice board to see them. We will give the signs to the eco commitee to site around the school.Finlay will fill out the order form and give it to Mrs McBey

We requested a compost bin in the lunch hall
