School Council

The School Council exists to ensure that the pupils are able to officially voice their concerns or ideas. The Council consists of the eldest children – Year 3. The school councillors meet once a term to discuss issues that are important to themselves and their peers. Improvements carried out in the past following the intervention of the School Council include the introduction of a fruit shop, cycle stands, a net for the football goalposts and a fish tank in the school foyer.

Raising money for Epilepsy

The School Council invited Catrin Davies from Ysgol Cymerau to school to talk to the children about cutting her very long hair (40cm) on ‘Heno’, a programme on S4C. Catrin’s hair will be used by ‘Little Princess Trust’ to make wigs. Also, Catrin was raising money for ‘Epilepsy’ and to help her raise more money, the School Council decided to organise a ‘crazy hair day’. Every child and staff came to school wearing wigs or coloured their hair. We helped Catrin raise another £61.03.
