Hi, we are the Lower School Student Council, and we are made up of 10 students with 10 voices. We have lots of experience at being leaders representing the Lower School. We listen to opinions in the Lower School and try to think of possible solutions so that there is a win win situation. 10 brains trying to think about a better school life for Lower School students. Together we will take the Lower School to new heights!
Being in on the Council is not that easy; we need to make a big commitment, have lots of confidence, creativity and most importantly, a positive attitude. We need to be collaborative with teachers or other students, but also, with the council members when working together. Sometimes, we might have different opinions and we need to think of solutions.
The LSSC serves as a student government, representing the voice of the student body, and take action to improve student life.
