Junior/Senior Student Council - 2019-20
John. F. Kennedy rightly said that “Leadership and Learning is indispensable to each other”, and it was epitomized in our Junior and Senior Student Council Elections. The students took ownership of the process from the very first day. After long conversations with peers, parents, teachers, they were able to reflect on their strengths and shortcomings which helped them submit nominations for the suitable positions. But the path to glory had just started! The next day, all the candidates sat through interviews where they expounded on their motivations for the specific posts. It was clear to the committee that these students came with a lot of passion, solutions, and zeal to make world a better place; but only a few could move to the next round. Now, the agendas were to be communicated to their peers. The stood before the audience and spoke about their beliefs and logos with such poise and grace! We also witnessed fantastic teamwork in the campaigning of the candidates, their friends coming together to shape the public opinion and intelligent voters engaging the candidates in conversation. Parallelly, IT faculty of the school was busy creating a software which would facilitate paper- free voting. It was an ambitious task but the school’s promise to the environment and sustainable living culminated with the electronic voting taking place and the results being announced the next day. This election saw the true amalgamation of technology and human will at Shiv Nadar School Faridabad.
