In both the Primary and Secondary School, the Student Parliament’s aim is to represent the social and academic interests of the student body. The Student Council promotes school spirit and unity through their many activities. The student representatives are leaders who inspire 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
reinforcing leadership and teamwork skills
The Student Parliament is well respected within the school community due to their ongoing commitment to making the school a better place for all.
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 Parliament an integral part of the school.
The principal goals of the Student Parliament are to:
create a comfortable, welcoming environment with clear communication and understanding amongst the students
foster an environment in which all students respect, value and care for each other
Help students acquire the skills, attitudes and qualifications necessary to become successful, responsible global citizens
represent the Vietnamese perspective in the school’s decision making
Through this Mission Statement, the Student Parliament assists the school to remain a relevant and thriving environment of learning and understanding, both inside and outside the classroom.
