School Council 2017-18
At St Margaret's we encourage the children to be thinking citizens and we have twelve councillors who make up the School Council.
The councillors are elected by members of their class, so that each class has a representative on the School Council.
Meetings are held regularly and matters concerning the development and improvement of St Margaret's School are discussed.
