Roles and Responsibilities

The School Council meets once every month.

We have an agenda for each meeting which guides our discussions. Our first task is to hold an internal vote for positions within the council and assign roles and responsibilities.

As School Councillors, it is our responsibility:

• To remain committed to our role as school councillor, be punctual for meetings and act as role models for peers.
• To take the views of classmates to the school council meetings.
• Let classmates know what was discussed at the meetings.
• To help organise and get involved in school council projects.

 

The School Council are always ready to listen and become pro-active in ensuring everyone’s thoughts and ideas are heard and given due consideration.

 

  • There is a suggestion box in each classroom to ensure everyone has an opportunity to put their ideas and thoughts to the Council. Please use the suggestion forms and keep ideas coming. These are read at each School Council meeting held and those ideas which can be discussed or investigated further, will be selected.

 

  • Class Councils are another way in which children can voice their thoughts, opinions and ideas. Our school Councillors are a great help in getting these up and running! The class representatives on the School Council can then bring everyone’s ideas/voices to the monthly meetings. This way the School Council tries to make sure everyone’s voice is being heard.

 

  • Tuesday breaktimes are designated meeting times for invited pupils to come and discuss their ideas with School Councillors. Keep an eye on the School Council noticeboard for notification of invites!
