Charity begins at home, democracy in School!
People think a good leader is rare, but that is not entirely true. All of us possess the ability to lead; it just takes some extra help to bring it out from within us. This is one of the reasons why we have established a Student Council in our school. The other being that we, the students, want to have a say in our own school life. The student council is similar to the Parliament, with a President, Prime Minister, Speaker, and 8 ministries: Service, Peace and Justice, Academics, Health and Nutrition, Culture and Creativity, Sports and Games, Information and Public relations, and Environment. The council can help the whole school, as the students can ask for what they think they require or suggest what they can do, to make the school a better place.
But what I, as a member of the council, like the most is that it gives each of us a chance to voice our opinion. All of us know we are a part of the school, but when someone is there to listen to us, we actually feel like a part of it. Another plus point is that it trains us from a young age to lead, to take matters in our own hands. Our student council is a training ground for the future leaders of our country. It is one of the best things in school, and all of us are proud to be a part of it.
