Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.
Two children are elected from each class. We hold weekly meetings in which the children feedback thoughts and ideas from their class and discuss our current project. The councillors then feedback to their class and note down new ideas for the next meeting.
Last year the School Councillors achieved the following:
-Raised money for Piam Browne Cancer Charity by holding a cake sale
-Introduced recycling bins in classrooms and monitors to switch off lights and computers in order to make our school greener.
-Raised money for the school by running a stall at the Merfest in the Summer.
Our first project this year has been to organise the events to raise money for Children In Need. We asked children to come to school dressed in their brightest clothes in exchange for a £1 donation and we held a cake sale in the afternoon that many pupils kindly donated to.
