The Rosary School Council represents the views of all our pupils. It gives pupils the opportunity to have a voice and to be key members of the school community. The aim of the school council is to help each other and improve life in and around the school.
School Council Members
The School Council consists of 2 representatives from each class. At the start of the academic year all pupils are invited to volunteer to stand for election. The class elects its representatives after hearing each candidates manifesto. School council meetings are held every half term. Here the elected members raise and discuss issues on behalf of their class.
The school council have highlighted some of the good work completed by the School Council.
