Felix awarded Head Boy for Multi School council

On Thursday 25th January the children representing 60 schools all met to vote for the head boy and girl for the Multi – School Council.

A project that was set up to improve awareness and inclusion of those with disabilities. St Andrew’s CofE Primary School had three candidates, who wanted to put themselves forward and who gave a speech to a room full of over 150 children and adults.

Felix Doran (year 5), from a local Irish traveller family, gave a brilliant address explaining why he will help improve the multi-schools council, so that more young people can share these opportunities and spread the messages of inclusion and understanding.

We are delighted that he was elected and his kindness and generosity of spirit has been recognised beyond our school gates. His election means that he will take a key role improving understanding of disability and the need for inclusion throughout our community
