Stormont’s School Council is a forum where every child matters and every voice is heard; during their time at the school, all girls have the opportunity to represent their year. There are two representatives per term from each class on the Council.
The School Council meets twice termly and is chaired extremely effectively by the Year Six House Captains. It is their responsibility to help generate active and constructive discussions raised by staff or pupils. Each girl’s opinion is valued and it is a great opportunity for all to develop their skills of public speaking and debate, formulating their own opinions and promote self-esteem and confidence to speak up.
Stormont School is a listening community and all ideas are communicated to the wider Stormont family for reflection and discussion. As well as the girls having a sense of ownership over decisions that are subsequently made, who knows: we may well be helping to nurture the lawyers, MPs and decision-makers of the future!
