School Council

Our School Council members are integral to Torwood as it gives our pupils a ‘voice’ and allows them to make formal decisions on a range of areas, such as school menus and events.

Members of School Council

Two class representatives will be democratically voted to School Council before the first meeting, this took place on Thursday 20th September 2018. A pupil as also elected from Mrs Da Re and Mrs Seagrove’s class as well as a pupil from Year 5.
