What Does the School Council Do?
In September, our new School Council was elected. The Council is comprised of children from Year Two to Year Six. Amongst other duties, the Council is responsible for: running projects, liaising with members of their class and taking an active role in decisions about how to improve our school. Well done to all of those elected and to those who put themselves forward for the vote. Even if you weren't successful, there will still be plenty of opportunities to volunteer your services throughout the year. Meetings take place every fortnight and Mrs Comerford is looking forward to working with both Pupil Voice groups and is excited for the year ahead.
