School Council 2021-22
At St Patrick's, we are proud to have a School Council as it represents the views and opinions of the most important people in the school: our children.
Our elections took place last week and we were thrilled with the number of children in KS2 who wanted to be a potential member of the council. They had all worked hard to prepare a manifesto outlining their vision and suitability for the role and then presented this through a short speech to their peers. Years 3 and 4 held their elections in class and pupils in Years 5 and 6 presented their manifestos to all KS2 classes.
On Friday 8th October 2021, pupils took part in a democratic vote and two representatives were elected from each class. The results were announced at the House Point Assembly on Monday 11th October.
Congratulations to our new School Council Representatives and well done to everyone who took part.
School Council 2019-20
Our School Council elections took place last week and we were delighted with the number of children who put themselves forward for the role of School Councillor. All manifestos were of a very high quality and the children presented themselves so well when outlining their ideas for making our school even better.
Years 3 and 4 held their elections in class. Children in Years 5 and 6 presented their manifestos to all children in Years 4, 5 and 6. Following this, children then completed voting slips and put them in the official ballot box, provided by Sefton Council. All results were announced at the House Point Assembly on 10th October 2019.
Well done to all those who took part and many congratulations to our new School Councillors!
Christmas Fundraising and support
Our School and Eco Councillors have been selling pots of bulbs once again this year to raise funds for the Don Orione Centres in the Philippines, India and Kenya.
The centres are run by the Sons of Divine Providence who make sure the money goes to where it is most needed. In the past, we have sent money to the centre in Bangalore where they look after street children, helping them with their education, to help with repair work in the Philippines following the storms and to an orphanage in Kenya.
Fr Martin and Joseph Tipping visited the School Council in January 2020 to thank them for their efforts.
Two Year 5 representatives from the School and Eco Council were keen to talk to KS2 pupils at the beginning of March raising awareness of how to look after our common home in response to Pope Francis' message 'Laudato Si'
Thank you girls for preparing such a powerful message.
