News from Head of Primary, Zoe Richardson

At The British School Warsaw, we believe that students should play an active role in all aspects of their learning.  One way in which we encourage students to take ownership of their school and their learning is by running the Primary Student Council (PSC).  The Primary Student Council is a group of students from Year 3-6 that meet weekly to represent students in the discussion of issues and topics of interest. 

 

Within the next two weeks, year groups will begin electing the student council representatives for this academic year.  Each year group will elect a male and female representative for the Student Council.  The role of the Student Council members is to gather information from class meetings and raise relevant issues at meetings.  The PSC helps to raise awareness of issues throughout the school and worldwide events.  It provides an open forum for pupil voice, where children are proud to represent their year group and make changes within the school.

 

Being a member of the Primary Student Council provides students with numerous benefits including:

  • The opportunity to participate in decisions that affect them.  Our students feel they have a say in school rules, policies and operations and can encourage other students to do so as well.
  • The ability to understand more about the democratic process. Democracy is an important principle that students need to understand.  What better way for students to understand the process than to directly participate in it?
  • The chance to learn important leadership skills. Universities and jobs are increasingly looking for candidates with strong leadership skills.

 

The Primary Student Council has been instrumental in the many exciting and positive changes that have taken place in our school. We are very proud of the role played by our students in developing our school and believe that we achieve a more pleasant and vibrant learning environment, as a result.

 

Kind regards,

 

Zoe Richardson

Head of Primary
