School Council

Recently our children took part in elections for our school council. Classes took turns to visit the polling station to cast their votes; the winning candidates were announced in a special assembly after every class had voted. 


Our newly elected councillors will now be meeting regularly to be the voice of our children and to contribute to the improvement that we, as a school, strive for.
