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

Class representatives will be democratically voted to School Council before the first meeting, this took place on Monday 30th September 2019. The older children were given the Job Description for a School Council Representative and were asked to prepare a short speech stating why they should be voted as a class representative to sit on the School Council and present it to class. The class then voted for the person they felt would make the best class representative.
