WHY DO WE HAVE A SCHOOL’S COUNCIL?
The School’s Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made within school. Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each Councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feedback any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council. Members meet regularly.
As well as holding the occasional fund-raising event during the year, the Student Council have also been tasked to think of ways that the school can strengthen its links to the local community.u00a0Any suggestions you might have would be much appreciated.
