In each mentor class, two students have been elected by their peers to take part in the first IES Kista School Council.
The aims of the School Council are to actively listen and pass student concerns to the school’s management team, but also to ensure staff and students are able to work together on projects to further improve the school environment.
On Monday 19th October the elected students from each class attended a training session. This was dedicated to providing an opportunity to meet each student and do some teambuilding activities, as well as going through plans to make the student voice effective.
The first meeting of the School Council will take place after the upcoming Autumn Break and will happen once each month. Also happening once each month will be a Class Council where each student has the chance to pass ideas to the School Council.
There will also be an elected School Council Presidential Election taking place in the near future to decide who will have the responsibility of leading those discussions with the school’s management team.
