‘...Of the Students, by the Students, for the Students...’

Student Council Information

The Student Council in St Farnan’s is made of students from every class group from every year in the school – we need everyone represented on the council.

Each class will elect a ‘Rep’ or representative and a substitute to cover and help out when needed – the rep will need to be a voice for the entire class but they will get lots of training and support from the rest of the council and their teachers.

Each class will elect one female and one male student to be the rep or sub.

The Student Council in St. Farnan’s will do the following work over the next year of school:

  • Listening to students opinions about school life in St Farnan’s PPS
  • Representing students’ views
  • Collect and provide information
  • A resource for fellow students and staff and parents
  • Support for your peers – helping with issues such as bullying and other social issues
  • Learn a lot about working as part of a group – organisational and communication skills
  • Improve school atmosphere, conditions for students and relationships in the school
  • Make links with the wider community
  • Help to improve school facilities and the school experience for everyone
  • Take part in projects to raise awareness and help chosen causes

The Student Council in St Farnan’s will meet frequently and be supported by teachers as much as they need.

During the last academic year, the Student Council was a strong voice in the school community's discussions of the Healthy Eating Policy, the new school uniform, supporting positive mental health and encouraging participation in extra-curricular activities, amongst other issues.
