Each year, children from each class have the opportunity to put themselves forward to become a member of the school council. Each class exercises their democratic rights and votes for their own school council representative.
Our school council engages in discussing issues that are important the children and to their education here at St Mary's.
This last academic year, the school council led the change around:
- playtime and lunchtime games and their organisation
- how the 'buddy bench' is used
- establishing a suggestions box system for all children to contribute and monitored it closely
