Our school council consists of a group of our pupils from all years, who gather to discuss, overview and analyse various school issues and project ideas and to come up with practical solutions for improvement of the pupils’ education and opportunities.
Pupils are elected by their class to represent the majority’s attitudes and views. Our school council has one aim; to continuously improve our school and provide great opportunities for all children to realise their potential.
The main purpose of the school council is to provide an official channel for pupils to express their opinions, present their requirements and get a chance to make decisions regarding their education. The interaction between pupils and teachers breeds ideas and innovations that will improve aspects of school life and provide opportunities for all children to take part in educational and social life.
Our school council discusses a wide range of topics, including extra-curricular opportunities, school lunches, sports clubs and many more.
