Aims:

The Loreto philosophy states that we should try to make Loreto schools places where “young people feel allowed to experience the exercise of appropriate responsibility” and “positive critical reflection is developed”

Through their participation in the Student Council students learn how to represent their classes, discuss issues, make proposals, tease out problems, explore alternatives, review decisions, use the democratic process to bring about change and work together for the betterment of the school community.
