The Pupil's Voice
Our school council allows our students to be involved in projects. 

In Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Glantaf, we have a school council which is made up of a group of students elected by their peers to represent their opinions and raise issues with the staff and governors in the school. The school council can take forward projects on behalf of the students, be involved in improving the school, attend governing body meetings and contribute to staff appointments.

Each class in the school elects two students to represent them. At least once, if not twice every term a year meeting is held with these representatives, chaired by 6th fom representatives. Two members in every year are elected to be on the School Council and they raise issues that concern their years. The School Council is ran by the Head Boy and Head Girl who raise all issues by every year with the Head Teacher / Deputy / Site Manager etc.

Why do we have a School Council?
Participation literally means ‘taking part’. As young people in Wales the right set out in Article 12 of the United Nation Convention on Rights of the Child (UNCRC) entitles you to have a say in things which affect you. Your School Council is a way of doing this but never forget that it can only be as effective as its members!

What’s in it for you?
You can gain important skills such as listening to others, put your ideas across and work in a team. It is your chance to work with your peers and adults. Why not make your voice heard?
