‘Members of the School Council contribute to school by sharing views and opinions and by trying to find sensible solutions to shared problems’ - CfBT Education Trust May 2012
‘There is a wide range of opportunities for students to take and demonstrate responsibility, and they make a significant contribution to the life of the school. There is a very active school council, which considers and makes recommendations on a wide range of issues.‘. – ISQM – May 2018
At St. Andrews Samakee, the different committees are made up of representatives from each of the classes from Year 3 to Y9. All the representatives are voted onto the committee by the children in their class.
Contributing to community life gives our children the opportunity to make their voices heard and feel part of the whole school community. To be a good committee member children require certain skills, e.g. the ability to be fair, a good listener, a great role model and a good representative of the whole class and school. These qualities help our children to achieve realistic goals.
