Election of the Student Council at Kuwait National English School
Kuwait National English School has long aimed to prepare students for life and citizenship. We encourage our pupils to be socially responsible and provide them with the opportunity to participate in decisions affecting the quality of life in the school and the organization of social activities. The student council stands as one of the means to this end, contributing to the attainment of this objective. The student council has the right to speak for the entire student body and to serve the needs of our students.
The composition of Kuwait National English School student council is made up of representatives from each class. This ensures communication between the students and the executive council. During Form time, through election by suffrage, class representatives and council members are elected. The official announcement of the election results and the award of official badges are made during a full school assembly in the Al Farabi Theatre. This academic year twelve students sit on the executive council:
Head Boy : Yousef AHMAD ABDULRAHMAN (Y11)
Head Girl : Retaj Osama Al SHAFEI (Y12)
Prefect : Ibrahim Khalid AL HADIYA (Y12)
The representatives from each Year group are:
Year 7: Adel Abu Safaqa, Hadi Kobeissi & Abdulrahman Khaled
Year 8: Patricia Georges El Haddad & Meshari Al Shammari
Year 9: Jana Yousef, Ali Hossein Dehdarooni & Basheer Daboul
Year 10: Radi Wael Ahlat & Yousef Ahmed Mlegy
The members are keen to organize extracurricular activities such as non-uniform days, Tolerance and Remembrance day, Halloween party, Fun Day, Year Book, Educational Field Trips, Graduation ceremony, concerts, plays, sports days, or other events. The student council members are often invited to participate in revisions of the school regulations, development of the educational project and the improvement of student services.
The election of members of the student council at Kuwait National English School is a learning exercise in democracy and in the vitalization of school life. The experience will stimulate the interest of our pupils in applying democratic principles.
