Colehill First School

School Council

Our School Council

We have a very active School Council at Colehill First School.

School Councillors are elected by their class peers once a year. There are three representatives from each year group from year 1 up to year 4 inclusive.

The School Council meet once per fortnight and their main purposes are:

  • to enable all children in the school to have a voice and to be listened to and taken seriously;

  • to improve all aspects of life at Colehill First School for all members of the school community;

  • to help children understand that good citizenship requires active participation from all members of the community. This is a lesson for life, not just for school
