The child’s voice is very important to us at Hartlip School. Our children are the most important stakeholders. We are keen at every opportunity to listen to what the children have to say about their school and learning experience.
Two Council Representatives are elected from each class.
The School Council meets every term. The children are permitted to bring to the meeting items of concern and displeasure. They have to learn the art of functioning as a Council, ensuring that they allow each speaker a voice and learn how to work through issues together. They need to understand that sometimes things cannot be changed or permitted in the interests of following policy or living together in a community. Likewise, it is important for the children to be permitted to pursue an activity or project and work hard to see it come to fruition.
Enjoy reading the very important role our children play in our school and how they shape it’s everyday life and experience.
