An educational institution is not just made of bricks and mortar, but creative individual thought, commitment to excellence, and passionate leadership.
The importance of a school's Student Council cannot be undermined. This becomes the first platform for talented young minds to showcase their leadership and gain valuable life skills, like, Management, Persuasion, Diplomacy, Politics, Negotiation, and Learning from failure at quite an early age.
Since the very year of its inception, the school has promoted the formation of the Student Council to extend a learning platform, enabling students to exercise their freedom to make the right leadership choice and understand the power of a truly democratic set-up.
Each year, the school’s Student Council is selected after a rigorous democratic process, in which the members go through a 3-stage filter to get selected for their prestigious roles. The students file their self-nomination on the basis of their strengths across qualitative and quantitative parameters, followed by a speech round wherein the candidates share their vision and plan for the nominated post. The fate of the top-3 candidates is decided through electronic voting where the students cast their ballot in favour of their chosen candidates.
The school followed an unconventional approach of organising an online election during the pandemic, providing an opportunity to High school students to nominate themselves to their dream post and participate in a fair and transparent electoral process.
Students across Primary and Middle school also get the opportunity to serve the school as class monitors and work closely under the elected Student Council each year, thereby allowing them to strike a unique balance of responsibility and accountability that leadership truly commands.
