Magherafelt Primary School Council 

At Magherafelt Primary School we promote the idea of being a listening school where children’s views are valued. Each class (P4 – P7) elect two representatives to form the School Council, which meet bi-monthly. Regular circle time and class discussion provide opportunities for the children to raise concerns and put forward suggestions as to how certain aspects of school life can be managed or improved. Additionally, the children are able to submit suggestions via a class School Council ‘Suggestion Box’ which is checked by the chairperson, prior to each meeting.


We want our School Council to give us opportunities to:

  • Be involved in making the decisions to improve school life for everyone.
  • Work more closely with staff in developing a caring school community.
  • Be able to voice the opinions of people   in our class.
