The School Council at Saint Christina’s is integral to ensuring that pupil voice is promoted and valued through listening to and acting on the views of children. It is comprised of 11 children from Years 2 to 6 who are democratically elected by their class peers.
The elected councillors meet to represent their peers and to propose solutions to issues raised by them. Scheduled School Council meetings take place once every half term. The Head Girl, Deputy Head Girl and Eco Monitors are, by virtue of their position, automatically elected to be members of the School Council each year and are instrumental in promoting the values and decisions taken in the School Council sessions. Pastoral care and particularly care and concern for new children, is at the heart of our School Council agenda.
Leadership enrichment opportunities are organised at least once a year, for example, a visit to Mayor’s Question Time at City Hall.
A key strength of the Saint Christina’s School Council is the outstanding commitment of all councillors to supporting charitable aims, for example, the Winter Warmer Appeal, the annual Harvest food collection and collections for victims of natural disasters. The commitment of our councillors to supporting the School and those in need is most inspiring.
