School Council Ground Rules

School Council Ground Rules

Written by Sonny and Leah, former School Council’s Publicity Officers

The following rules were drawn up and agreed upon by the School Council:

  1. To be responsible
  2. To be willing to participate in meetings
  3. To respect each other
  4. To arrive to meetings on time
  5. To be committed

Listen to other people’s ideas because every idea counts. We discussed in one of our meetings that one of the most important skills of being a School Councillor is to be a good listener.

To be a good listener, you have to make eye contact, to keep your hands and feet still so the person talking knows you’re concentrating on them.
