What makes a good one?
A good school council is one that represents the views of all students and gets things done.

Many schools have councils, but they are not all successful. These are some things that make a council effective:

  • Regular meetings

  • A council that is not too big

  • Class/Form councils that meet regularly

  • Good communication between representatives and their class

  • Training for school council members

  • Smaller groups (subcommittees) working on specific events or issues

  • A bank account or budget (however small)

  • Annual evaluations
