Dundonald School Council is made up of two representatives from each class, starting from Year 1. At the beginning of the Autumn term, the children elect two people to represent their views and attend school council meetings. These are held on a weekly basis, where they investigate an issue raised by their classmates, Mrs Duffy (Headteacher) or outside agencies (Governors, members of the PTA and members of the LA). The councillors then feed back to the pupils about what happend at the meeting and make things happen, or explain why they can't.

The school council want to empower all children at Dundonald Primary School.

"Empowerment is not just about academic success; it also means having your views listened to, respected and acted upon."
