School Council

At Creggan Primary School we really value the opinions of the children.

The School Council gives them a voice.

We believe that:

- Pupils have a right to be listened to.
- It is important that pupils are consulted when appropriate.
- A democratically elected School Council provides a structured opportunity for active pupil participation in decision-making within the school.

The School Council aims:
- To empower pupils to participate in their school community as active citizens.
- To promote a sense of responsibility and ownership of the school community.
- To give the children a 'voice' through the School Council representatives.
- To encourage children to care for school property by involving them in decision making processes.
- To foster and encourage positive and responsible attitudes and behaviour.

The School Council is made up of children from Primary 3 to Primary 7 and meets regularly
to discuss issues and plan school events and resources with Miss McCann.

Many of the suggestions made by the School Council are acted upon and help to make our school a happy and pleasant place to work and play
