The School Council was created as one way of Cullybackey High School demonstrating its respect for the rights of the children and young people who attend the school. Pupils can approach School Council members at any time giving ideas to improve the school. Suggestion boxes are placed around the school in which pupils can post their ideas, concerns and requests. These are very much appreciated and are always acted on by the school council members.
The School Council is made up of four representatives from years 9, 10, 11 and 12 and two representatives from 6th form. There are three elected office bearers, Chairperson, Deputy Chairperson and Secretary.
In past years the School Council has achieved many things. Such as:
- A sandwich bar in the canteen
- Uniform changes for year 10, 11, 12, and 6th form girls
- Televisions at lunch in the canteen
- Prefect ties
- Water vending machines
- Internet Awareness evening
The School Council also carries out a number of annual events, such as the Christmas and Valentine's Day card delivery service.
