School Council

Ballyholme Primary has a large range of activities – from sports to literature. One of the great things about our school is that it allows pupils to have a say. School council is their voice.

School council is a group of pupils (voted in by their peers), along with Dr Henry, who meet regularly to discuss the school’s needs. There are six P7s, and three P6s.  They are made up of Chairperson – Rebecca Reid, Secretary – Alice Hawthorne, and Treasurer – Sophie Longstaff. The other councillors are Nathan Dellar, George Patten, Connor White, Harry McDonough, Adam Lynch and Zara Matthews.

Even though these six do not have a name beside them, it doesn’t mean they do not get a say in the meetings. We all pitch in to make the school an even better place.

The whole school, from P1 to P7, get a say in what they think would improve the school. We have a Suggestion Box, and that is where pupils get their say. They write onto a slip of paper, and post it into the box. We try to read all of the suggestions and decide whether they are appropriate or not. We have had many suggestions, from a pyjama charity event (which we are thinking about!) to a bike cover. Most of the ideas we get are creative and clever. We hope you have ideas for us to consider in the future.
