Do they get anything done?
Many school councils just talk.

Good school councils do get things done and examples include councils who:

  • Successfully campaigned to the local council and got their toilets sorted out

  • Re-designed the school cafeteria and lunch menu

  • Reduced bullying by introducing a telephone helpline for victims

  • Designed a new homework diary and sold over a thousand copies

  • Changed the school uniform from blazer and tie to comfortable sweatshirts
