Do they get anything done?

School dinners

Lots of school councils just talk, but others do get things done.

Examples of school council successes include those who:

  • Successfully campaigned to the local council to get 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 which sold more than 1,000 copies

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