School Council

Deanery’s school council consists of 8 children from Years 2 – 6.  The council meet regularly to discuss events coming up and generate ideas on how we can fundraise as a school.  The school councillors are also their classes representatives and bring their classes ideas to meetings and discuss how we can make improvements to our school.  In addition, the children also devise questions to be asked at interview for prospective teachers.
