School Council


Our school council consists of 2 children from each year group from P3-7.  The children put themselves forward for election and represent their class at half termly school council meetings.  The school council discuss issues within the school and try to find resolutions to the problems.  They also work on Fundraising ideas and identify areas they feel the funding should be spent on in the school that will best meet their needs.  The school council is an active part of the student voice within the school and helps prepare the children for post primary school and beyond.  The council has a very good impact on the children and they take their role as Councillors very seriously and we have found in experience when the children are involved in implementing their own strategies to problems they have ownership of these and are able to better understnad the reason for certain rules and routines.  We are very proud of our school council and the work they do within our school communty.
