St Luke's School Council
St Luke’s School Council are a hard working team of dedicated children. The Council is made up of two children from each class (Years 1-6). Class Representatives are elected by the children in each class following a ballot and vote.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we are unable to hold regular meetings at the moment. The School Council have met a couple of times this year and will hopefully meet again before the end of the year. Under normal circumstances, meetings are held regularly.
During these meetings, the council work through the agenda drawn up and discuss the matters together. It is a great opportunity for the children to feedback their views and opinions on their school community and work together to make a difference to our school. Recently, The School Council updated and improved our school's Anti-Bullying Policy for Children.
Students can put forward their views and suggestions to their class representative who is then responsible for bringing these to the meetings.
Our School Council members for this academic year are:
Megan and Joshua
Mila and Zach
Olivia and Jamie
Aoife and Rylan
Poppy and Samuel
Chloe and DAniel
