Teachers TV: School Council - Big School Democracy
Nicole Harris, the global citizenship coordinator at Lymm High School explains that in 2002 students were split into 73 forms, each belonging to one of five halls. Each hall has its own council. Each council consists of representatives from classes across all three key stages. Halls are self-governing and reflect the wants and needs of their students. Elected representatives from each form meet weekly. Meeting minutes with action points are taken and representatives report back. The Whole-School Council then meets every two and a half weeks to coordinate campaigns and share information.
