The purpose of the GSA Primary School Council is to allow primary students the opportunity to meet each other to discuss global topics of interest, collaborate on joint projects and celebrate special events.
Primary Student Council meetings will take place at 8.30 UK time and last 60 minutes. The structure of the meetings will be determined by the Student Council President and their committee. A maximum of ten students per school may attend Student Council Zoom meetings accompanied by a teacher. Generally topics will be posted before the meetings to allow members so do some research and preparation. The Student Council welcomes comments and suggestions from members.
