 Student Council 2018-2019

Our First Student Council meeting took place on Tuesday 23rd of October.

Our meeting began with a warm welcome to the Student Council from Ms. Mathers our Liaison Officer.

We had an open discussion and explanation on the role of the Student Council in our school. We mentioned the benefits that the Student Council brings to not only the students but also the school as a unit and all staff.

We had a brief discussion on litter in and around retail outlets in the town. This will be discussed further in our next meeting.  Our next meeting will take place after the Mid-Term break.

The Student Council has met on the 14th,15th and 20th of November 2018.

The Council was joined by a diverse range of students from the general body of students in the school. The agenda was to discuss ways to counteract problems with one of the local retailers. The two main problems discussed were how to ensure a smoother transition in and out of the shop as well as accessing and paying for food. The other problem discussed was how to ensure that the car park area was left clear of litter. A representative from the retailer attended one of these meetings (15/11/18) and a worthwhile exchange took place. All parties are willing to try and bring about change. These views were conveyed to all students when the council addressed their peers in the Assembly Area. A greater awareness on both sides certainly has been established.
