School Council September 2016-17
Every year the children of St Patrick’s vote for two children from each class to represent them on the School Council. Having a school council allows the children to have a say on issues in school. The council meet weekly to talk about things that are important to the children and to organise or take part in activities or campaigns that are happening in school.
Elections were held in September and our 12 Councillors were elected by their classes. We look forward to an exciting year ahead with lots of ideas from our Councillors and all of our pupils.
In October, councillors had their school council training and begun holding their meetings. The older Councillors represented our school at the Liverpool Schools Parliament. All the children’s ideas will make up a manifesto for all the children of Liverpool. As part of out British Values that enable us to be a democratic society, we were given ballot papers to have a say in what we consider to be the most important issues, such as having defibrillators in all schools, basic first aid training available to all children, safe transport and feeling safe in our community.
All out councillors will be going to The International Slavery Museum in October as part of Black History Month.
