We caught up with our Year 7 Student Council to get an insight into their roles and responsibilities.

Faye: I wanted to change Cowley’s community for the better.
Tyler: To make a difference.
WHAT IS THE STUDENT COUNCIL RESPONSIBLE FOR?
Mason: To try to help around the College.
Group: To prevent pollution and to implement changes for the benefit of all.
WHAT QUALITIES MAKE A GOOD STUDENT COUNCIL MEMBER?
Faye: To be caring.
Josh: Having confidence definitely helps!
Rhys: To be aware of your
surroundings at all times.
WHAT ARE THE EVERYDAY DUTIES OF A STUDENT COUNCIL MEMBER?
Rhys: To look after other Year 7 students.
Katy: To ask other students what they want to change
Imogen: To always look out for things that aren’t right and to report back
HOW DO YOU BECOME A MEMBER OF THE STUDENT COUNCIL?
Each form throughout the College has two students who represent on the Student Council.
To become a member of the Student Council, students volunteer themselves and if there are quite a few students in a Form who wish to be part, then the teacher will draw names out of a hat.
It’s worth noting that achievement points and behaviour are taken into account before a student can join the Student Council.
