Committees

 

All pupils from P1-7 are involved in our Pupil-led committee work.  Classes  choose at the start of each year which areas and themes they would like to learn more about/take action on and vote for representatives to join the school Junior Leadership Team.  

 

Teaching staff facilitate the work of their class committee on a weekly basis.
