Student Leadership Council

In addition to academic learning at ISR, there are a lot of other fun ways students can get involved with our school and develop their interests. SLC is ISR Student Leadership Council at ISR.

SLC is a distinctive and integral part of ISR because it gives students the opportunity to develop “life” skills that empower them to make a substantial commitment, not only to their own personal development but also to that of the ISR community.

SLC is formed by teams of students who work with their departments to promote positive interactions as well as a sense of community. In addition, our afternoon SEA activities offer students the opportunity to discover interests and talents. These activities are led by external partners as well as ISR students, teachers, and families.

SLC – Engaging our students with the school community.

– The Departments

The Student Leadership Council consists of eight different departments for which student trustees are responsible. Students help organize events, including, for example, charity events, recreational activities, school events, and more. For example, our dedicated Physical Health Department helps organize ISR Family Fun & Sports Day – a family sporting event for the ISR community. Children from kindergarten through 4th grade can volunteer to participate in activities. Starting in 5th grade, daily participation in an activity is mandatory during the 9th hour of class.

“We, the members of SLC, are comitted, accountable, and responsible to make the school life of the ISR Community flourish by being academic and discipline advocates and providing positive experiences and events.

Students take on responsibility

We encourage our students to lead activities for their peers or even younger students as early as 6th grade in order to…

  • Gain valuable life experience and leadership skills
  • Develop organizational skills and emotional intelligence
  • To give students the opportunity to plan a long-term project
  • To teach students how to interact with others
  • To work together to create a positive school atmosphere
  • To teach students to accept challenges while learning from their mistakes
  • To strengthen social skills

Additionally, there are opportunities for our students to take on leadership positions within the school. For example, they may be recommended for a position as an SLC student leader (prefect) or as a leader of a team. In these positions, students learn how to organize themselves and others, as well as how to motivate others. As a member of SLC, children, and teens can also participate in weekend training and team-building activities. The skills learned will be of great value not only later in their school career, but also later in life.

ISR’s many additional offerings provide our children with a variety of opportunities to develop personally, exercise talents, and enjoy the school community.
