God is at the heart of our school.
With the help of our community, we will strive to learn, love and achieve.
At St Antony's we place our children at the centre of our school and seek to develop the whole child – spiritually, morally, culturally and academically so they are well prepared to meet future challenges.
As a school we value the thoughts, ideas and opinions of all our children and the School Council is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and has an impact on the development and daily life of the school.
The School Council is made up of representatives from Year 2 to Year 6. Each class votes for the two representatives ( a boy and a girl) to be part of the School Council.
What will be expected of the school council representative?
They will be responsible for the ongoing process of collecting the thoughts, ideas and opinions of the children in their class and reporting back to the Council so that all children in our school can have their say.
They will bring new ideas forward as to how we can improve our school and local environment.
They will sometimes come to the meetings with ideas of fund raising for the school and for other local or national charities.
They will identify the priorities and lead the initiative to enhance what we do as a school.
We want to make sure that our school is:
a safe and happy place for children
a place where children can voice their concerns
a place where we encourage all children in the school to suggest improvements
a place where suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon.
We look forward to another exciting and successful year with the ideas and suggestions from each class brought by our councillors to discuss at meetings, in order to support and suggest improvements in our school.
School Council Constitution
St Antony’s School Council Prayer
You have called us together as servants to do Your will.
May Jesus’ light guide us in our role as a School Council?
May we be responsible in our decision making?
May we be considerate as we listen to one another?
May we be understanding of one another’s ideas and talents?
May we be humble as we work together for the common good?
May we help to bring about the change we want to see?
God of Love,
You give us the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
May Your blessings shine from us to others.
We ask this through Jesus Christ the Light of the World.
