Developing Leadership Skills through Student Council at YCIS Pudong
Every academic year, YCIS hosts Student Council elections, which gives the student body a chance to vote for a selection of their peers to represent them in student matters. The Student Council focuses on organising events and gatherings for students promoting awareness and raising funds for charities, and also providing a direct line between the student body and the school leadership. To have equal representation of all of the different year groups, each homeroom class elects a Student Council representative. Two Co-Presidents share joint responsibilities in leading the Student Council.
