This will be followed by leadership training sessions to help the Oakridge student council sharpen their skills as they take baby steps into being the future leaders of this world.
“At Oakridge, the development of Student Leadership is the process of involving students in meaningful ways both in and beyond the confines of the classroom. Investiture is one amongst many opportunities provided to students to engage in activities that promote and encourage values of respect and responsibility,” said Ms. Pallavi Mishra, Principal at Oakridge Bengaluru.
The Student Council at Oakridge is assigned a variety of responsibilities, including formulating rules within the context of the overall school policy and, most importantly, serving as positive influencers and changemakers of the future.
The selection of the student council is a rigorous process that starts with an opportunity for each child of the relevant grades to self-nominate. They respond to some key questions about self-introspection and leadership during this process. The shortlisted students are then scored on a few key points like-a sense of responsibility, leadership, discipline, etc. Following this round, they meet the panel for an interview. A few positions are based on interviews. After the interview, the committee and school presidents proceed to the elections.
On this occasion, the school Principal congratulate all the council members as they embark on their new journey at Oakridge in their leadership roles.
