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.

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 held a coffee morning for staff so that we could explain our goals and demonstrate the delicious produce available.  It was very successful!
