Pupil Voice

The most important people in our school are our children. We give them lots of opportunities to try new things, to be given responsibilities and to share their thoughts and ideas about school issues.

School Council

The main aim of the School Council is to help to make our school a better place for the children. It is the children’s role to drive school improvement and the council meetings provide a forum for the children to discuss their ideas related to any aspect of their school life. Each class from Primary four upwards has at least two representatives who are elected every year. The class representatives tell the children in their classes what has been discussed at each meeting and the children can ask the representatives to take forward their ideas to the next meeting. Within the committee each representative has an important role.

Eco-School Council

The representatives from the school council are also on the Eco-School council. This year the council is working towards achieving the bronze Eco-School award. The aim of the committee is to promote environmental awareness across the school. To date pupils have discussed the key issues which affect our school and have outlined 3 areas which they wish to address in order to improve the school and its surroundings. They plan to improve the school grounds, promote healthy living and promote environmental awareness.  Additionally, Eco-monitors are at work in each classroom ensuring that all lights and computers are being turned off throughout the day. The Eco-School council over see that this is being done.

Pupil Prefects

Pupil prefects in Primary Seven are given many responsibilities in the school and out in the playground. They must lead by example at all times in their behaviour, the respect they show to others and their school uniform.  A prefect’s role is varied and to be awarded a school prefect badge is considered to be a real privilege. The pupil’s enjoy being active citizens in the school community and value the respect and responsibilities’ given to them. Some of their responsibilities include; working with classes during wet break times, working alongside teachers to promote positive behaviour, leading classes and supporting others around the school, helping to set up the hall for assemblies and showing visitors around the school.

Playground Buddies

Playground Buddies are prefects who help the children to work and play together in school and recognize when some children are having difficult times in the playground. Recognising the value of a buddy system in the playground, the school council fundraised to purchase a Buddy Bench. Our ‘Buddy Bench’ is now located in the playground and is a safe place where children can sit when they would like the Buddies to help them. The Buddy will then talk to the child and help them find someone to play with.

Out and about in the community

Pupils also have many opportunities to go out and represent the school in the community. This year pupils have had the opportunity to sing in the school choir at the Comber Farmers market in the Square and in a local nursing home. This was a great opportunity for pupils to not only spread some Christmas cheer but to meet and talk to people from the wider community.
