Our School Council allows every pupil the opportunity to make a difference to their school by getting their voice heard.
Each sub school has their own council, one for Yr 7 and 8 – The Foundation School Council, for Yr9 and 10 the Development School Council; finally we also have the Senior School Council.
Members of each sub-council are elected via a democratic process, putting themselves forward as candidates during the first term of the school year. Usually there are two or three elected representatives from each form group.
The sub school councils each meet with the Directors of Achievement for that group regularly and feed into the overall School Council once a term. The School Council is made up of representatives from each of the sub school councils.
Having the smaller sub school councils means members are more targeted in addressing specific needs rather than trying to cater for the whole school’s needs.
Funds are available for the council, but the pupils have to put together convincing bids in order to secure them.
Recent improvements down to the school council include the new orange bins located around the school, to help keep littering down to a minimum, and a wide range of games and activities that can be offered during wet breaks.
