Secondary Student Council elections coming up

As things continue to improve and normalise at school we  are very pleased to announce that we will soon initiate the  2020-2012 Secondary Student Council elections. 

The Secondary Student Council (STUCO) has always been a very important part of student life at ISL. STUCO is an elected body whose members both serve and represent ISL students.  The STUCO members organize and/or facilitate a wide range of activities for all of the Secondary School and are role models for other students. For example, members may act as a school ambassador/representative at both external and internal events. They may also oversee student dances, movie nights, fund-raisers and spirit week/days. The STUCO members  also develop important leadership skills as they learn how to represent the Secondary students’ needs and ideas for school improvement as they liaise with the School  administration.

The Student Council is made up of an Executive Committee and Class Representatives (Homeroom/Class “Reps”) elected by their peers from Years 7 through 13. 

Executive Committee (will serve from  January 2021- December 2021)

  1. President (Year 11 or 12 student)

  2. Vice President (Year 11 or 12 student)

  3. Secretary (Year 10, 11 or 12 student)

  4. Treasurer (Year 10, 11 or 12 student)

  5. Public Relations and Media Coordinator (Year 10, 11 or 12 student)

  6. Student Health, Welfare and Environment Representative (Year 10, 11 or 12 student)

  7. Events and Activities Coordinator(Year 10, 11 or 12 student)

  8. Middle School Representative(Year 7,8 or 9 student)

 

Class Representatives (will serve from  January 2021- June 2021)

1 student from each Tutor Group/Homeroom from Year 7-13

 

This is an excellent opportunity for students to develop; their leadership skills. Win or lose we think that applying for the position is a valuable experience in and of itself, so we encourage parents to encourage their children to consider running.

Due to some  time/commitment requirements,  (after school/weekend) students who wish to apply to these positions must have their parent’s permission. Permission forms will be forth-coming.

Application details will be given to students in the coming week. If students or parents have questions about the election or the roles of the representatives they should ask the Class Tutors or Mr Ves Ivanov who is in charge of Student Council this year.
