School Council

Meet our School Council 2022/23

Our School Council consists of 12 pupils. There is a class representative from each class from P5 to P7. Each representative has a keen interest in Sports, Music, WAU, Ict, Literacy and Numeracy.


The School Council plays a very important role in our school. The 12 councillors help to make St Oliver Plunkett Primary School a nicer place for pupils, staff and our wider community. Here at St Oliver Plunkett Primary School we promote the Pupil Voice. We believe students should be able to speak for themselves and assist in making decisions concerning them.

School is a happier and more enjoyable place when pupils and teachers are working together and listening to each other.


The council meet once a month. Meetings consist of the councillors proposing new ideas, airing classmate's views, creating resources; including videos, posters and leaflets and our school newsletter to promote council messages.

The boys and girls had a fantastic morning in Cairnmartin Court Care Home. They got to meet the residents and chat to them about their life memories, before joining them in a sing song.

The School Council have already started to make a difference. On Saturday 26th September, the councillors joined hundreds of people in the grounds of Stormont Estate. The children got to walk for a very special cause, helping to support the Alzheimer's Society.
