Why A Student Council?



What should we do when pupils have a fight?


How can we make lessons more interesting?


What equipment should we buy for the playground?


What outing should we organise?


How can we help pupils make friends?


Why do we need School Councils?



For many years, all the decisions about children were made by adults. This was thought to be best because adults are older and have experience, training and qualifications.

But adults didn’t always make the right decisions, sometimes because they hadn’t talked with the children about the issue.


Most of the countries of the world got together and agreed that children must be given rights. Plus, sometimes their ideas are actually better than adults!


So the government decided that adults must listen to children before making a decision about them.
