School Council

The School Council

The School Council is made up of two children per class from Woodpeckers (Year 1) to Eagles (Year 6). At the beginning of the Autumn term the children who were interested in becoming class councillors gave a personal presentation to their classes describing how their individual qualities and characteristics made them suitable for the role. Each class then held a democratic election to appoint their chosen representatives. The council meets on a weekly basis.


These are the elected councillors for 2018 – 2019:


Woodpeckers: Amaani Mamuji, Humayd Nargolia

Kingfishers: Suleman Mohammed, Aisha Saddique

Swallows: Owais Khan, Ayesha Noori

Doves: Farhan Iqbal, Aleksandra Vasileva

Owls: Noor Faisal, Asad Noori

Kestrels: Haris Afzal, Juwairiya Hanslod

Hawks: Saleh Mohammed, Ayesha Sidat

Eagles: Faizan Sattar, Aksa Syed
