Due to the increased work of the Student Council with more activities being held and more ideas being put into practice, we have made the decision this semester to expand the council body by introducing Deputies who will assist their class representatives in certain projects.
The Student Council has been preparing for and looks forward to bringing the following in this semester:
--Easter Egg Sale
--The Dance Competition (Co-organises with Ms. Joshi)
--The Battle of the Bands (Co-organises with GOS Music Department)
NEW PLATFORMS ESTABLISHED:
--Suggestion Box on the 4th Floor beside Room 402, where any message, note or complaint relating to the school can be filed. (even secrets!)
--Online Suggestion Box (LMS): A platform for online interaction between students and councilors where they can freely discuss any ideas or suggestions relevant to the school.
--Homework Club: For older students to teach and interact with younger students; group members to complete school projects together; opportunity to revise with classmates for upcoming exams. This is held once every week.
--Student-run ECAs: Secondary students can set up their own ECAs during lunchtime if the proposal has passed through the Student Council and the senior management team.
STUDENT COUNCIL—HERE TO INSPIRE SPIRIT!!!
