Event Details

Greenwich Young People's Council (GYPC) are delighted to invite you to their first ever School Council Conference 2017!

The conference is taking place at Greenwich Free School on Tuesday 30 January 2017, 9:30am-3:30pm.

The aim of the conference is 2-fold:

1. Help GYPC decide its priorities for the year ahead;

2. Learn about how to be the BEST youth representative in your school;

3. How to effectively deliver time-limited campaigns in your school to make a positive change!


Please note – this event is open to young people who are members of their school council - or equivalent student representative body. This is NOT an event for 'any' young person in your school.

Each school has been provisionally allocated 10 spaces - we've assumed there are 2 reps per KS3/4 year group. If you'd like to bring members of your Sixth Form (KS5), please let us know.


This event is being planned and led by Greenwich Young People's Council, and event managed by The Participation People - who are commissioned by the Royal Borough of Greenwich to deliver the Youth Voice Service across the borough.



1. Please REGISTER all participants – schools are invited to bring up to 10 young people from their school council or student representative body, and up to 2 members of staff.

2. Download THIS consent form – this must be completed by all young people attending the conference. Please ensure you bring these with you on the day, or scan and email in advance to

3. Preparation is key – each school council will have 5 minutes to present their successes and challenges to EVERYONE else; so we'd encourage schools to prepare this in advance, rather than on the day of the conference! If you require a PowerPoint facility, please do let us know at least 24 hours before the event.

4. Campaign ideas – please come prepared with up to 3 topics for projects or campaigns you would like to run in-school. These will be the basis of a number of the activities during the day.

5. Please bring a packed lunch – lunch will NOT be provided, but water, juice, tea and coffee, and some very light refreshments, will be provided. This applies to young people AND staff.

6. A full programme for the day will be sent out no later than 2 weeks before the conference date.



1. What are my transport options for getting to and from the event?
There is NO PARKING available at the venue, but parking may be available on nearby residential streets. The venue is well served by public transport - with buses to/from Eltham, Kidbrooke, Shooters Hill and Greenwich.

2. How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
If you have questions about the day, please email, or call 020 8921 6053.

3. Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
This is absolutely fine - we just need to the 'final' names at least 24 hours before (to print name badges, mainly!).
