School Councils Wales

Get involved

The “getting involved” sections of the site give you more ideas and examples of how pupils can be actively involved in decision-making in your school community, and how grown ups can support them.

This may be through your school council, but it should be in many other ways, such as healthy schools and eco-schools, but also through things like questionnaires, suggestion boxes and focus groups, and through teaching and learning.

Everyone should feel they have a voice in school, no matter how old they are or who they are.

If you are in secondary school, feel you are not being listened to, and have problems you would like to discuss, you may be able to talk to a school counsellor.

You can see how young people experience school counselling by viewing the DVDs ‘Masks and Mirrors’ and ‘Reflections’ on this page.
