School Council

School Council

The school council works to make improvements to the school and the way we do things at Al Ameen. We look for things that could be better and discuss what to do. Everyone gets a chance to speak and when we’ve finished we vote on the best ideas and then start working on changing things. Sometimes we have to talk to Ustadh Mumin or other teachers to help us with our ideas.

Who are the school councillors?

School councillors are elected every year by school pupils. Two councillors are voted in from each class (years 1 – 6).

The Minutes

The minutes are the notes that we take at the meetings; they explain what we said and what will happen next. If your class representative was at the meeting their name will be present.


We try to be very professional in the council so we use a lot of business words. Hopefully this will help.

Agenda – a list of things to talk about

Councillor – someone who has been voted for to work for their class mates on the school council
