We, at Wisdom, intend to provide opportunities and platforms at the right moment of a students’ growth. Wisdom Student Council is formed to stimulate minds and convert ideas into actions. Students of Grade VIII – Grade XII get to participate and be a part of the council. At this stage of a student’s life it very important to understand and respect Responsibility and begin to understand oneself as a Leader or a Follower.
For Wisdom Student Council, we have recognised 5 traits in a student that needs to be honed and worked upon – Responsibility, Leadership, Empathy, Discipline and Innovation. The council is provided with a set of duties and freedom to work in and around them. The set of duties which involve a direct interaction with the school management and teachers, revolve around the entire routine of a school running apart from the various activities and events that take place.
The selection process of WSC was an eye opener to the students as well as the school itself. The process began with a written round which spoke about students’ ambition, desires, quest for learning and their love for the school. This was followed by a one-on-one interview with the school Principal, Director and the senior faculty. The selected students had to then be a part of a trial run on the basis of which the final council members were selected. Wisdom Student Council comprising of 9 Ministers, 2 Educators and 25 Council Representatives have so far played an important role in the daily running of the school, the Namaste Campaign and School trips.
