Our vision is for all students to be able to contribute towards the continuous improvement of the school community.
The School Council is a body of students elected by their peers in a formal election setting.
These students represent the views of all the pupils and consider ways to improve their school. The school council is made up of at least 2 representatives from each year group who discuss matters about their education and school life and raise any concerns with the Senior Management Team and Governors of the school.
We firmly believe that young people have unique perspectives on learning, teaching and schooling in general and we encourage students to think about how to enact their understanding of human rights and responsibilities in practical ways. It gives them direct experience of debating and negotiating issues and see the 'bigger picture' of how the whole school is run.
The role of St Patrick’s College School Council is to listen to and represent the views of all students in our school. The St Patrick’s School Council are keen to make a significant contribution to improving the overall achievement of students and ensure they have a rich, varied and enjoyable experience while they are here and that they are given the opportunity to express themselves, formulate arguments, represent the views of others and feedback to their peers.
