School Council


The Department of Education (DE) is keen to support all schools to have structures in place which
allow pupils to have a real say in issues that affect them and to know that their opinions count.
There are a number of ways in which schools can choose to help achieve effective pupil

A school council is a formal group of pupils within a school who are elected by their peers to represent them and their views.

Our school council members are from P4 - P7.

P4: Tahlia and Tommy

P5: Ellis and Emily

P6: Ava and Jake 

P7: Lexi and Noah

We meet once a month. It is important that children should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. A school council can provide a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them.
