What is the School Council?
The School Council was established in 2009 and is open to P5, P6 and P7 pupils. It highlights the Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities and Personal Development and Mutual Understanding elements of the Revised Curriculum.
Elections are held annually and offer pupils the opportunity to develop their literacy skills and help empower them to create a positive school environment
To date the council have been involved in Haiti Earthquake Appeal fundraising; supporting school discos/fun nights, purchasing playground equipment, organising school competitions and planting trees within the school grounds.
Many issues such as involvement in revising the school rules,organising fundraising events, supporting school activities and arranging competitions have also been addressed.
Last year the Council provided classroom activities for wet days; organised a whole school competition promoting positive lunch time behaviour and supported the Buddy System in school.
This year a new group of council members have been nominated and selected following school elections and they are currently formulating the school council constitution for this year. Another busy year lies ahead for the council!
