School Council

What is a school council?

A school council is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and to improve their school.

 

What does it do? 

The school council does a number of things:
The school council meets - usually with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out problems. These may include school lunches, behaviour or ideas for fundraising events.
Members of the school council will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed, such as planning fundraising events.

 

Do they get anything done? 

Many school councils just talk.
Good school councils do get things done we are very proud to be in this category here is an example of what we have done in recent years
 
  • Raised money for the tsunami victims in Japan by organising a sponsored walk around the school grounds.
  • Raised money to help to fund for a new football kit for the school.
