WELCOME TO THE SCHOOL COUNCIL
Saint Patrick's School Council are a hard working team of dedicated children. The School Council are very busy and pride themselves on making a positive impact on their school. We meet on a fortnightly basis and carry out tasks in between meetings.
We have a Foundation Council which is made up of two children from Years 3-6. These children stay on the Council until they leave for High School. Each Year, the Foundation Councillors are joined by two representatives from each class in Years 2-6. Class Representatives are elected by the children in each class. Children are a Class Representative for one academic year.
Check out this area to find minutes of School Council meetings, previous and current projects! If you have any ideas for the School Council, look for a rep who will be happy to bring ideas forward to the next meeting!

As a group we have decided that each half term we will raise money for atleast one charity and organise atleast one event to help raise money for school.
We have also decided that any change we received throughout the year, when buying toast at tuck time, will be donated to
CAFOD Just One World.
