Members of St. Andrew's School Council are elected by their class peers every September. One girl and one boy are asked to represent the interests of their fellow pupils for a term of one academic year.
The children have regular meetings with Mrs Allchurch, where they are consulted on various school issues. They contribute
insightful and relevant opinions which are valued highly. They are often invited to attend important events in the city
and always conduct themselves in a mature, smart and respectful manner.
