Promote knowledge and spirit with posters. (graduation poster image by robert mobley from

Part of the job of any student council organisation is to share information and build school spirit. One effective way to accomplish these tasks is to create informative and inspiring posters to place around the school hallways. By creating posters that both disseminate knowledge and promote unity, student council members can work to build a stronger school community.

School History

Use posters as a means by which to convey information about significant school events and build students' knowledge of the history of the school they attend. Gather information about the development of your school building over the years, and photos of the building and its students throughout history. Create a series of posters, featuring enlargements of these historical photos and titbits of historical information about the school. Place posters in prominent areas of the school. As students move about the school, they can read the posters and build their knowledge of their school's history.

Alliterative School Spirit

Spread school spirit with alliterative posters. Phrases that use alliteration, or the repetition of consonant or vowel sounds, are more lyrical and easier to remember. When getting ready for a rivalry match-up or a big sporting event, make posters to get students raring to go. Try phrases like "Bulldoze the Barrett Badgers" or "Wonderful wizards will win again!" Place your phrases prominently on your posters, and decorate the rest of the sign with bold colours and images appropriate to the sporting event. Your team will likely appreciate the encouragement, and your peers will develop a stronger sense of school pride.

Joke of the Week

Lighten the mood in your school with a series of "Joke of the Week" posters. At the beginning of the year, gather poster creation supplies. Use the internet or joke books to pick out some particularly funny puns. Create a poster for each selected joke, writing the pun prominently on the poster and decorating the rest of the surface with geometric shapes or images relevant to the joke. Hang a new poster each Monday morning. As students begin to notice these joke posters, they will likely start to look forward to receiving their weekly dose of humour.

Student Showcase

Advertise the success of students to encourage others to follow suit by making student showcase posters. Select one student from each grade each month. Pick pupils who exemplify academic effort and school citizenship. Charge a member of student council with interviewing and photographing the selected individual. Create a poster featuring each individual's photo. Place the student's name, and information about just what makes him so special, on the poster. Display the posters in the halls, giving the selected students their time to shine.
