At Colchester Academy we have changed the way the school council is selected and run. We now have a council running through every year group. We feel the student council role a very important and responsible position, and it should be treated as such. It is vital that we have the correct students in these positions because we need students that will become role models for others, and will lead by example, showing an exemplary attitude in everything that they do.
The role will give ten students in every year group the opportunity to develop themselves through a variety of activities and events.
At Colchester Academy we aim to develop our students both academically and personally and this role will enable our children to develop both these characteristics. Not only is it the perfect way to develop their chances of becoming future prefects but it will enhance their college, apprentice, job and university applications, as it shows our students as an all-rounder, willing to get involved and help to develop both the community and themselves.
