Student leadership is an experience which is highly valued by the whole school community. Students experience a range of opportunities within the classroom to develop their leadership skills but we also have key leadership positions for Primary Students in the role of Student Council.
The Primary Student Council has representatives from each class (Years 2-6). There is a defined process for the election and selection of the Primary Section’s Student Council members (PSTUCO). The representatives serve as the link between the classrooms and the Primary Student Council. PSTUCO’s function is to bring student ideas and concerns to the school administration as well as helping to coordinate and organise events throughout the year. Regular meetings are held to discuss fundraising events and school activities and two Primary Teachers act as advisors to PSTUCO. As such, they are the leaders of student action. The Primary Student Council supports Kids for Kids (www.kidsforkids.org.uk), Dar Al Mustagbal Orphanage, the French Sudanese Friendship School and Khartoum Chesham Home.
Leadership takes many forms and all of our students are encouraged to be leaders in different areas throughout their time at KICS. This is especially true when students enter the IBDP programme where leadership is an expectation of students.
The Secondary Student Council (STUCO) is a democratically elected body of students that consists of the Main Council (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) as well as three committees: Service Committee, Social Committee, and Sports Committee. Each committee has two elected representatives.
The Main Council, Committee Representatives, and STUCO members work together toward making KICS the best it can be.
STUCO’s function is to bring student ideas and concerns to the school administration as well as helping to coordinate events, fundraisers, and service-learning activities throughout the year. STUCO's goal is to facilitate change, advocate for student’s rights and organize activities for students within the community.
