School Council - June 2015
Young activists on Loreto Grammar School's Student Council are making a real difference to life at the Altrincham faith school. Each year every form from Year 7 to Year 13 elects a representative to meet and discuss student life and the girls' voices are being heard.
One of the senior students Eleanor Mulligan, 17, explained some of the actions that had already been undertaken: “We have ensured that a number of sixth form students have received some high quality first aid training; we have helped to design the interiors of our new canteen and, perhaps, most importantly, we have set up forums so the younger girls can come and talk to the older students and learn about life at Loreto.”
Student Council coordinator Amy Williams said: “I have very little input; the girls drive the Council and make sure they get things done. We certainly have a number of very influential young women who I am sure will go to take up pivotal decision making roles in later life.”
Loreto Grammar School Headteacher Mrs Beever said: “We want the girls to take an active role in changing life at Loreto for the better and I will always listen to and, when appropriate, act on their suggestions. They have come up with a range of first class ideas which are both progressive and compassionate.”
