Greenmount Primary School’s Councils.

At Greenmount Primary we have our student elected School council and our Eco Council. Both councils have representatives from Years 1 through to 6. Their role is to ensure everyone’s voice is heard and support the implementation of positive changes within our school. They meet once a month.

School Council

This year, our School Council aim to:

• To meet regularly to discuss their views and be heard.
• To organise whole school and class events
• To organise charity days
• To make sure our school is a happy and safe place for all of our children
• To make sure children have a place to voice their concerns, opinions, and thoughts
• To encourage all children in school to suggest ideas and improvements
• To ensure any suggestions or concerns are listened to and acted upon

Eco Council

This year, our Eco Council aim to:

• To increase the biodiversity of the school grounds, in particular plant life, birds, small mammals and insects.
• To develop and increase the children’s awareness and application of healthy living
• To reduce the carbon footprint of the school through reduced energy consumption.
• To increase recycling throughout school, reducing landfill waste
