LAMPHEY Primary School ambassadors, Ruby and Tilly, working alongside the school council, are ready to have a real say in issues that affect them and their peers.

The school council and the ambassadors are a formal group of pupils who were elected by their peers to represent them and their views.

Ruby and Tilly said: “There are many reasons why we have a school council at Lamphey but one of the most important ones is that young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives and our school council provides a really good way in which we can voice our opinions to make Lamphey school even better.”

Headteacher Simon Thomas was delighted with the work that had already been undertaken by the ambassadors and was very much looking forward to working alongside the pupils for the rest of the academic year.

“I am delighted with the appointment of the ambassadors who had to undertake a rigorous selection process including presentations, meeting with myself and other senior teachers before being selected by their peers through a secret ballot. I know that Tilly and Ruby with the support of the school council will help the staff and I to continue to raise standards across the school with a very special focus on health and wellbeing this year.”
