Grahamvale Primary School announced its junior school council members at an assembly on Monday afternoon.
Six excited youngsters were welcomed into the council, with State Member for Shepparton Suzanna Sheed presenting them with their badges.
‘‘It is a wonderful thing to be elected and have the opportunity to lead the way for fellow students,’’ Ms Sheed said.
‘‘I congratulate all the new leaders on their roles and I know they will give the school a great feeling.’’
Grahamvale principal Simone Higgins said the junior school council was involved in a range of activities during the year, teaching students how to organise and run events that gave back to the school community.
‘‘The council helps students to grow their leadership skills and develop new ideas which they can then watch come to life,’’ Ms Higgins said.
‘‘The students also talk about different ways to spend available funds to support a range of new purchases for the school.’’
Junior school council members are also invited into school council meetings to report on what they have done during the term and share any ideas for the future.
‘‘We teach the students to be the best they can be, while knowing what can be done to improve,’’ Ms Higgins said.
