A School Council is a representative group of students

who have been elected by their peers to represent their views and raise issues with the Senior Managers and Governors of their school.

 

A School Council can also propose and take forward

initiatives and projects on behalf of their peers, and be

involved in strategic planning and processes such as the

School Development Plan, governing body meetings and

staff appointments.

 

The object of an effective School Council is to help

children and young people to:

  • enjoy and feel empowered by their education
  • feel that their school responds to their needs andviews
  • have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them
  • have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making their school a better place
  • develop life skills through participation

 

The first meeting of the new School Council will take place on Friday 11 December 2015.

 

Well Done to everyone who has been elected onto the Stormont House School Council for 2015 / 16.
