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.
The older members of this year's elected School Council have already attended their first event. They attended the Youth Council meeting at the Council Chambers on Thursday 26th September. They will be Vice-chair of the meeting next March.
