High School Student Council
- H.S. Executive Student Council
The High School Student Council plays a significant role in the life of Al Wisam students. It is composed of 19 students from the high school who are elected by their peers. We have representatives from our four grades, three councils and from the entire high school (executive student council). There is a president, a vice president, a secretary and a treasurer in each group.
The Student Council will host a series of events, including class competitions, the High School talent show, Family Fun day and others that will be decided throughout the year to raise spirit and energy within the high school. They are also responsible for the weekly assemblies where they inform the students about upcoming events and advertise opportunities both inside and outside of school for our students to get involved in.
The Executive Student Council works extremely tightly with the Head boy and Head girl as well as the grade representatives and the Academic, Social Service and Sports Councils to not only create a pleasant atmosphere in the high school but also to help each other grow as individual leaders throughout the year. As executives, they emphasize on the importance of personal growth through the student council workshop they host. They try to be the bridge between students and teachers as well as the bridge between Al Wisam and the other Schools. To extend and strengthen their connections, the executives will work with representatives from other schools to organize small events, such as the student council exchanges as well as big events. All of the 19 students in the Student Council are driven, creative and enthusiastic and put in a lot of effort to accomplish the goals that they set for themselves.
