St Columba has a school council which is elected each academic year. Their main role is to help the Principal improve the Academy by letting her know what children think about St Columba.
Being a school councillor is a very important role. The children that are chosen by their classmates are usually elected because they have good listening skills, are respectful and have lots of good ideas. They have to be able to report back to their classes and their teachers about what has happened at the school council meetings. Sometimes the school councillors organise competitions or run surveys; they try and get everyone involved in Academy life.
