About Our School Council
The school council is an important aspect of school life in Morriston and is trusted and valued by members of the school. It consists of representatives from across the school and provides a way for all students to have a say about what goes on in their school. The school council also teaches students about democracy and how to bring about change. They learn that to influence their communities and education they have to work together in a constructive way and that doing this effectively comes from collective action, team work, research, debate and compromise.
The pupils meet on a regular basis (at least monthly) to consider aspects of school life. Staff in the school are able to bring issues to the table to discuss with pupils and the school council members suggest topics for consideration. These issues are ones that the School Council feel are important for the school or topics that other pupils have brought to us. Miss Lloyd runs the school council and chairs the meetings. Mrs Davies helps to support these meetings.
New school council members are elected each September. These pupils volunteer for the role, submit information on why they would like to represent their peers on the school council and then the pupils in the year group vote for the candidates they think will best represent their year group. There are two representatives on the school council for each year group.
