Holy Ghost Catholic Primary School

School Council

The School Council is elected by fellow pupils.

Each class from Year 1 to Year 6 has two representatives, each Council serves for one year, with a new Council being elected every September. The two Year 6’s are the school-elected head boy and head girl. 

Our School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community.

The school council meets regularly to discuss concerns from their classes or to talk about their latest project.

The theme for this year's School Council is:

’Our school council wants to educate students and teachers to take action to create a school that is more environmentally friendly.’

"What we want to accomplish:

  • Educate all pupils and staff to be more eco-friendly in their daily lives
  • Reduce our paper waste
  • Reduce the amount of electricity we use
  • Cut down on food waste

Why we want to make these changes:

We believe that these sustainable actions are important because they will reduce our school's carbon footprint. We have learnt that when we focus on sustainability, the entire world benefits and we and all living things get to live in a clean, more healthy environment. It can help living species like sea animals and those animals that live in the rainforest. Just by remembering to put your plastic water bottle in the recycling, and encouraging others around you to do the same, you can make a difference. After all, it is the small changes that we make to make the world a better place!”
