At Léman, our Student Council are trusted and empowered by their classmates to serve as the voice for their year groups. By communicating their fellow students’ needs, concerns, and desires to their teachers and administration, they develop a sense of purpose to make things better within our own school. They also build important critical thinking and leadership skills that they’ll use in their futures.

Another popular activity our students are engaged in is building a more sustainable future through a circular economy via Zero Waste Company Chengdu. Our students develop an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources.
