Jo visited St. Joseph’s Primary School yesterday to speak to pupils on the School Council, Eco Council and House Captains.
Pupils at St. Joseph’s elected their School Council by secret ballot, and selected members of the School Council also sit on the Eco Council where they debate environmental issues.
Commenting, Jo said:
“It’s great that pupils at St. Joseph’s are being encouraged to become active citizens and to take an interest in the decisions that affect their lives. I’m impressed that they have been able to experience voting in and running for elections, I wish I had had that opportunity when I was at school!”
