Leadership is the art of motivating a group of people to act toward achieving a common goal. Leadership is about the art of encouraging, influencing and directing people so that they work together to achieve the goals of a team or broader organisation.
At AISB, we believe student leadership lies at the heart of improving our school and enabling young people to realise their potential. it’s important for students to experience leadership opportunities during their schooling; to learn the art of building relationships within teams, defining identities and achieving tasks effectively. One of the best ways students can learn these leadership skills is by involving themselves in the Student Representative Council.
The AISB Student Representative Council was first introduced in 2018 – 19, to provide the necessary skills, confidence and motivation for young people to engage directly in the wider improvement of the school and, in particular, in the improvement of all student’s learning experiences.
Membership on the Student Council enables students to become advocates for their own needs and the needs of others. It lies at the heart of building a sense of community and trust in school and builds effective relationships. An investment in student leadership is a direct investment in tomorrow’s leaders of our school and of our community.
