Making Decisions Together

by Tina Barthel

Since the beginning of the school year, the class council of the German Primary has been meeting every Friday. The third and fourth graders have joined forces for this purpose and discuss problems, wishes and ideas together, suggest solutions and vote democratically. The moderator takes charge and leads the group through the class council. So far, they have already discussed rules of conduct for better cooperation, longer lunch breaks and more games equipment for the primary department. Of course, the secretary also takes minutes. In addition to these discussions, there is also a positive session in which each child expresses thanks, praise or apologies to another child.
