The children in our school are the most important people! As such, they have lots of opportunities to share their thoughts on school issues – both formally and informally! Mrs. McGrenaghan’s door is always open for both children and adults!
The main aim of the School Council is to help to make our school a better place for the children and to give us an opportunity to have our opinions and ideas heard. Each class from Year One upwards has two representatives who are elected every year.
At the first meeting of the year the important roles and jobs are selected and Miss Parry helps us to conduct our meetings.
The class representatives tell the children in their classes what has been discussed at each meeting and the children can ask the representatives to take forward their ideas to the next meeting.
Everybody gets a fair say in the meeting and nobody gets left out.
Every topic we study at the start the teacher will ask us what we would like to learn. The teacher then includes the things we want to know about in our learning journey.
