School Council

What is the School Council?

The school council is made up of elected members who give the school its ‘pupil voice’. Members of the school council are elected after giving a presentation to their class about their ideas and how they intend to represent their class members’ ideas and thoughts.  The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Holy Cross We look around for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things.

Who are the School Councillors?

The school council consists of two pupils from each class from Years 1 to 6.
Every year we run an election campaign to vote for two new representatives for each class. A good representative will speak at the council meetings about things that their class is interested in. They will also tell their class about what is going on in the council meetings.

Photography Competiton

In late February the School Councillors helped organise the photography competition. The competition is being run by FSE Design and is based on School Spirit. The Councillors found out the information about the competition then went to their individual classes to find out who wanted to take part. We had a lot of interest in this competition. As you can see from the photos above the pupil's took some lovely pictures. For our School Spirit we wanted to show that our school is full of Love. 


UNICEF Day for Change

On the 6th February the school will be taking part in activities for the UNICEF Day for Change and our school councillors discussed with their class what we could do on this day. Izabel completed the survey with the class which took everyone's ideas of changes we could make around school.
