What we think about our role

Here are just a few quotes from our School Councillors that sum up what they do and what they love about the role...

“I liked being a school councillor when we did Sport Relief. I like talking about what we want to change about the school.”  Ciaran, 2G
“I like to think of ways to change the school to make it a better place. We run charitable events such as: Sport Relief, Comic Relief and more.”  Elsa, 5R

“My role as school council is fun because helping kids in need makes me feel helpful. Also we’re helping lots of schools and also my school.  We have achieved all of these things and I have enjoyed being with my friends and making new friends from different years.” Violet, 3A

“I enjoy being a school councillor because I like taking ideas from my friends and discussing them with the other school councillors. Since being on school council I’ve met new friends. It gives me the confidence to say what I think and listen to other people’s opinions.”  Eden, 3P
“As a school councillor I would like to achieve most of the things the students and classmates want. I would like to thank all of my classmates that voted for me. Being on school council gives me more confidence.”  Kimera, 5Y

So thank you for voting for me.”  Eva-Sofia, 5M
"I want to achieve a good school, a good system and good people.  I’ve enjoyed asking my class how they want to change the school because I felt I was doing something good. Something that I have felt before. When I’m a school councillor I feel like I’m something big, very big.” Kalila, 3J
