About the Campaign
When you empower a person, you empower many others. Sustainable change comes from allowing people to reach their full potential so they can become more confident and able citizens in society.
The Student Leadership Council (SLC) seeks to empower students by making them leaders of their school community. The 5 students elected for the SLC act as the spokes people for all of the students in the school.
The SLC representatives are able to make decisions about where the SLC funding for the school should go, have weekly meetings to discuss school issues, activities and plans, and are able to speak freely with teachers, the Principal and other members of the school staff.
The SLC consists of a Captain, a Vice Captain, and 3 Active Members; all 5 members are presented with badges to showcase their leadership role in the school community. The SLC builds confidence, resilience, hard work ethic, consciousness about social and environment issues, develops skills with public speaking and also harnesses leadership potential for the future.
The SLC is a positive initiative that seeks to bridge the gap between students and teachers, to bring the school community together so that the school can move forward, have ideas brought to life and to deliver school graduates who have practised real-life skills of problem solving, forming opinions, being a positive influence for others and being active members of society.
Background information about The Help Nepal Appeal
