2018 - 2019
Our School Council is made up of 1 pupil from each class from Years 1-6, every year we run an election campaign to vote for a new representatives for each class.
A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and feedback any upcoming changes.
Miss Byrne in year one runs the council and we aim to meet once every 2-3 weeks to discuss suggestions from the box outside Mrs Nott's office and work on longer projects such as the school shop and library.
If you would like anything to be raised by the Council please talk to your councillor, drop a note into the Suggestion Box or talk to Miss Byrne.

Today the School Council representatives from Years 5 and 6 went to SYPP to discuss some important matters with School Council members from other schools. We had a fantastic discussion about crime in the local area and our rights.
For many years, all the decisions about children were made by adults.
This was thought to be best because adults are older and have experience, training and qualifications.
But adults didn’t always make the right decisions, sometimes because they
hadn’t talked with the children about the issue.
All the countries of the world got together and agreed that children must be
given rights. Plus, sometimes their ideas are actually better than adults!
So the government decided that adults must listen to children before making
a decision about them.
Article 12 – Every child must have a say in matters affecting them.
