School Parliament: Towards students‘ active participation


In this section you find hands-on materials to go with the project week that preceded founding the parliament

Project week (grade 8): Establishing school parliament in Labyrinth 

A special project week in grade 8. Its main aim was to give the students the opportunity to find the best tool to participate in making decisions and changes at school in an effective and systematic way. It was intended to increase students’ participation in school life, to empower all the classes at school, and to hand over more responsibility. This goes hand in hand with the Labyrinth vision – the development of social and civic competence in order to help the students to become active citizens in the future.

 School parliaments‘ networking

School parliaments can work as individual bodies. At the same time it can be useful for them to share their experience, motivate one another and find common goals. Therefore, networking of the school parliaments can be useful. Here is a case study of Labyrinth school parliament which is a part of Tišnov region school parliaments’ network.
