The children at Shepherdswell are at the heart of our school community, and we highly value their thoughts, opinions and ideas.  Our School Council is one way of ensuring that the voice of the children is heard and can make an impact on the life and development of the school.

Class representatives from each class are elected by their peers twice a year.   In their role as School Councillor they:

  • bring forward new ideas for how we can improve our school and local environment.
  • discuss issues that the classes have raised, resolving any problems and finding solutions to make sure that all children are treated fairly.
  • lead projects in the school where the children’s input is needed, acting as a liaison between the classes and the school.

School Council meetings are held weekly, and children are given the opportunity to lead discussions.
