What is the School Council?
The school council is a group of representatives from each class. We work together, with adults in the school, to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at St Patrick's by sharing our opinions and ideas. The School Council representatives from each class will bring ideas forward from children in their class so ensure that the every child's voice is heard at St Patrick's! The School Council's aim is to make St Patrick's the best school it can be!
Who are the School Councillors?
At the start of a new school year we vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings and share any important news.
