Return to Children

School Council

We have an enthusiastic school council, representatives from each class in year 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are elected to our school council.  We also have a chair and a secretary, these roles are filled by year 6 pupils.  They meet regularly with a member of the teaching staff and also the headteacher to discuss issues that concern the children.  If you scroll down this page you will be able to see some of the work we do and our latest projects.

A school council representative needs to be:

  • interested in what goes on around school
  • able to present the views of others
  • a good role model around school
  • good at listening to others
  • good at making decisions

School Council projects

Our latest project, among many, is the possibility of making Welwyn St Mary’s a Fairtrade school.  We recently held a coffee morning for staff so that we could explain our goals and demonstrate the delicious produce available.  It was very successful!
