Student involvement in school life is a must. Teachers, administrators, parents and alumni, should join efforts to help students become active members of society and better citizens.
Since1998-99 at Saint Joseph School, students have had a say in what goes on in their life at school. This is realized through a Student Council (SC) elected by the student body. It is a voluntary, non-profit organization governed by internal laws and regulations.
The SC is involved in students’ academic, artistic, and sports activities, and serves as a liaison between the students and the Administration, the Teachers, the Alumni, and the Parents’ Associations.
The name of this organization is the Saint Joseph School, Cornet Chahwan, Student Council.
The SC is made of representatives (delegates) of each class section in the Secondary School, and the representatives assembled (council of delegates) elect officers of the council who will be as follows:
President, Vice - President, Secretary, Treasurer, Committee Officers:
Public Relations, Cultural, Sports, Vision Newsletter, Yearbook, Environment, Media… A total of 11 members will form the SC.
The Student Council
All students enrolled at Saint Joseph Secondary School are eligible to vote.
Elections for class delegates are held every year during the second week of October and for the SC during the fourth week of October.
Candidates for class delegates must submit their candidacy to the principals/assistant principals during the first week of October.
“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more; you are a leader.” [John Quincy Adams]
Saint Joseph School students have a say in what goes on in their life at Secondary School through the actions of the Class/Section Delegates and the Student Council (SC).
SC membership has been a rewarding leadership experience for all previous members.
However, it is a demanding experience that requires discipline, responsibility, and commitment.
The SC members are involved in academic and extracurricular activities of the student body.
Moreover, SC members are expected to:
§ Act as inspirational role models to the student body
§ Serve as a liaison between the student body and the school community
§ Manage their regular academic loads and their student leadership tasks simultaneously
§ Attend weekly meetings (Recess/Afternoon)
