St Anthony’s school believes that pupils should be given a wide range of opportunities to develop and practise leadership skills in preparation for life beyond school.
Some of the leadership opportunities open to our students can be found on this page, however this is just a snapshot of a host of chances within school where pupils can represent their peers and where they can be empowered to work with staff towards shared goals.
Many Pupil Leadership activities will focus on improving the quality of life at St Anthony’s and supporting the school’s aim to be a place where everyone enjoys learning and is creative – trying new things, finding solutions and embracing responsibility.
Pupil leadership roles:
- Anti-bullying Ambassadors
- School Council
- Class Buddies
- Playground Friends
Hull Young People’s Parliament
Pupils at St Anthony’s have the chance to participate in the Hull Young People’s Parliament.
Four children from Year 6 who are elected by their peer group, meet with young people from schools and youth groups from across the city.
The Young People’s Parliament meets at the Guildhall three times a year. Whilst at the Parliament the children are involved in debating local and national topical issues in the council debating chamber.
This year’s members have discussed and debated on Knife Crime, Mental Health & the 2019/2020 campaign ‘Protecting the Environment’. These pupils can put their concerns to The Mayor, councillors and decision makers who are in a position to act on the pupils concerns if they can.
The pupils really are in a position to make a difference; previous members were involved in a ‘Parks and Graffiti Improvement’ debate and as a result of this our current members have been informed by our ward councillors that Fishers Park will be having a revamp costing thousands of pounds.
