A student council is a formal group of pupils who act as representatives of their classmates in discussing school issues with the principal and staff. It’s a brilliant way of representing and contributing to Pupil Voice in our school. Students are elected to represent the views of all pupils and also to improve their school. “Student council” means all kinds of school-based groups run by students. They help to make decisions about how the school is run and take on projects that support the children’s learning and development, such as organising charity events or ensuring the school is environmentally friendly. Student councils are usually elected annually by the other children. A student council does a number of things:
The Student Council
Hello, we are St. Francis Xavier’s student council. This year we have been working very hard. We would like to share with you our achievements and thoughts for the future.
Our Fundraising Efforts
In October, we organised the Halloween raffle. It was a great success and we raised €1,327. We would like to thank the people who took part in the fundraiser and a special thank you to all of the people who contributed prizes and sponsored us.
Thoughts for the future
As we have raised a lot of money for the school, we plan to spend it on things for the school. We are thinking of buying board game and outdoor equipment. This year we are going to organise many fun activities and events for the pupils and staff at SFX.
