The School Council at Avon House Preparatory School consists of pupils from Pre-Prep to Prep who are elected by their peers to represent their class at School Council meetings. Our meetings are led by the Chair and Vice Chair plus a teacher representative.
As members of the School Council, we take our job seriously. We see ourselves as the voice of all pupils in the school and have the responsibility of keeping the School as problem free as possible. We take the classes’ ideas and problems straight to the meetings and we prioritise the most important plus the ones that catch our attention. We help all pupils in the School to feel confident with sharing their ideas whilst helping the School with its fund-raising events. We have regular meetings – every one important as the rest.
