The Student Council was established to enrich students’ experiences at BVIS and to assist them in developing leadership, problem solving and teamwork skills.
In both the Primary and Secondary School, the Student Council’s aim is to represent the social and the academic interests of the student body. The Student Council promotes school spirit and unity through their many activities, producing leaders who are inspiring towards others whilst encompassing all the aspects of the school’s Mission Statement in their everyday lives.
Elected representatives meet regularly and are actively involved in researching and resolving student issues, organisation of social events and reinforcing leadership and teamwork skills.
The Student Council is well respected within the school community due to their ongoing commitment to making the school a better place for all promoting student voice. BVIS students benefit from working collaboratively with the school’s Leadership Teams on whole school initiatives and development plans for the future: this is what makes the BVIS Student Council an integral part of the school.
The principal goals of the Student Council are:
· to create a comfortable, welcoming environment with clear communication and understanding amongst the students;
· to foster an environment in which all students respect, value and care for each other;
· to acquire the skills, attitudes and qualifications necessary to become successful, responsible global citizens;
· to represent the Vietnamese perspective in the school’s decision making.
Through this Mission Statement the Student Council aims for the school to continue to be a thriving environment of learning and understanding, both inside and outside the classroom.
