2018 Student Council Elections


Date: 05 Nov 2018 // By: Rita Dzide-Tei

Our Student Council continues to play an integral and important role in the school community. Since its inception in September 2015, it has been conducted by students and supervised by the Principal. The Student Council provides an opportunity for students to develop leadership skills ,by organizing and carrying out school activities and service projects in the local community, nurture and share their ideas, interests and concerns within the school wide community. In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the Student Council is also the voice of the student body.

The function of our Student Council is based on parliamentary procedures and all students interested in leadership, community service, event planning or becoming more involved in the school are welcome to contest the elections at the beginning of each academic year.  This year’s event was no different. Prospective Student Council members presented their ideas and the student body voted on on Friday, 28thSeptember 2018 at Morning Assembly.

This year’s Student Council is unique in that nearly all the children have come from the Year 5 and Year 6 class. Although this presents its own strengths, particularly in terms of the patchwork of ideas, this cohort will benefit the most from adult guidance. Hence, this cohort will work closely with the Principal, their class teacher and the senior class to spearhead the school’s community service plans.The Student Council will continue our weekly visits to the Methodist School in Kenyase on Tuesdays between 2.00 to 3.00pm. The school has been approached by the Noble Family School, on the Kenyase-Hwidiem road, so weekly visits into the community will alternate between these two schools.  The Student Council for the 2018/2019 academic year was inaugurated on Friday, 5th November 2018 at Morning Assembly. We wish them a very productive tenure! of office!
