The School Council is about to embark on its second full year of activities since its inauguration.
Mentor representative elections are currently taking place within Mentor Groups. Once Mentor representatives have been elected (6 in each year from Years 7-11, 3 in Years 12 and 13) the girls involved will be included in a year group election to vote for the two representatives per year who will join the School Council.
The School Council therefore consists of 12 representatives across the year groups, the Head Girl who chairs the meetings and Mrs Grehan and Mrs Cooper. The Council meets every two weeks.
Over the past couple of years, the Student Council has put forward student views on a number of issues, including enhancements to Cafe Beau. Its greatest success to date has been its involvement in the refurbishment of the toilet and cloakroom areas in the Upper and Middle School buildings to incorporate new mirrors, sanitary provision and more aesthetically pleasing soap. The students in the Secondary Department were consulted regarding colour schemes.
The Council raised approximately £1,000 towards the refurbishment costs through ice cream sales in the summer term and a disco event for Years 6 and 7.
Who knows what they will decide to do this year- watch this space!
