Our School Council
Pupil councils provide a basis for active learning of important life skills, such as speaking and listening skills, teamwork, emotional literacy, problem-solving, moral reasoning skills, self-esteem and self confidence.
Pupil council experiences provide a dynamic foundation for learning about citizenship.
Young people and children acquire skills which help them to become resilient to negative experiences.
School and class councils enable pupils to have a voice and to understand that their opinions count.(www.schoolcouncils.org)
"School councils can be a most excellent training ground in responsibility for future citizens."
Professor Crick, 1998 Chair of the Advisory Group on Citizenship
