The School Council was set up to enable the children to have a say in the running of their own school. In this way, the children have a greater sense of belonging, become more confident when putting forward ideas and develop a greater understanding of the need to work cooperatively for the good of others.
They meet regularly to discuss ways in which to improve the school or to work on fund raising ideas. Please look at their events page to read some of their great successes.
Meet the team!
After being elected as a School Council member, the first thing that happens is another election! The members vote for a Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson, Secretary, Deputy Secretary, Treasurer, Deputy Treasurer and Events Organiser. Then they discuss the values and rules that should be implemented to make a successful School Council Team.
