Our Students’ Council is organised so that pupils in the school have a forum at which they can air their views and bring up ideas to improve the sense of community within the school. The work of the Student Council is a valuable facet of school life.  They undertake many practical tasks in addition to offering their views on a wide range of topics. 

The role of the student council is to:

  • Provide an opportunity for pupils to voice their opinions and offer suggestions in relation to many aspects of school life.
  • Discuss issues relevant to the school and encourage and promote initiatives from the pupils.
  • Offer an opportunity for all pupils to voice their opinions on proposed changes and thereby play a very important role in improving our school.
  • Act as a channel for communication within the school, between pupils and between home and school.
  • Encourage pupils and thereby their parents to organise events central to the life of the school.
  • Provide an opportunity to raise funds for charities or our school equipment fund.

Through our Students’ Council we hope to give the pupils a positive role in the organisation of the school and thus ensure they feel they are listened to and respected for their ideas and concerns and these are both valued and valuable. It involves the pupils in many of the decisions, which are made regarding the day-to-day running and management of the school. Discussions in classes and at the Council meetings help to develop social and learning skills in many areas such as speaking and listening, problem solving and decision-making and the decision-making process.
