ISO Student Society  


The role of the Student Society is to involve students in all aspects of their school life - essential for their social and emotional development, beneficial for their academic progress, and integral in creating an environment where cooperation, responsibility and good discipline prevail. Student leaders learn to be resourceful, good problem-solvers, idea-contributors, promoters of school activities, dependable, and people who can work with others and who exemplify positive attitudes about their schools and communities. As well as leadership, there are many other ways for students to get involved, be part of wider school life and extend their range of skills and abilities. The Student Society also offers teaching staff opportunities to participate in student life through their guidance of particular student activities and involvement in school events and trips. A commitment by teachers is essential in providing supervision and maintaining links between faculty members and students; it is an expected part of a teacher’s job at the school.

The Student Society Officer is the staff member responsible for leadership of the Student Society. This person is accountable to the School Director and oversees the work of the student committees, and liaises with the teaching and administration staff and also applicable persons and organisations external to the school.
