What is a school council?
A school council is a group of pupils elected by their fellow pupils to represent their opinions within the school. Our School Council is made up of two children from each class who have been elected by their peers. We meet once a fortnight to discuss suggestions made by our classmates and to raise any issues that we feel need to be addressed. We begin each meeting with our School Mission Prayer and strive to uphold this mission by doing all we can to make our school the best that it can be!
Our School Mission Prayer.
Help us to follow the example of Christ
By being His disciples here on Earth.
Help us to do the best that we can do
To be the best that we can be
And to make you proud Lord.
To be effective, the school council must:
Represent all pupils and include as many people as possible.
Take time to listen to all pupils and communicate their views.
Feed back to pupils about what happened about their views.
Make things happen – or explain why they can’t!
