At I-EP, we strongly believe that every student has the potential to be a leader. Therefore, in the process of holistic person cultivating, I-EP actively promotes leadership education and integrates it into students' learning and life. We take into account the cognitive and behavioral traits of children and give them leadership roles and responsibilities. In this way, students will be able to take an active role in school affairs, offer constructive comments and ideas, and show their talent in different zone. They will learn to take responsibility, work cooperatively as a team, think independently, and solve problems on their own. In addition, leadership education will help students build self-confidence and self-esteem and develop their communication skills.
By becoming a member of the students' union, students are able to take up various positions and roles, such as chairman, vice-chairman, ministers and so on. They will demonstrate their talents when taking responsibilities, improve their teamwork and leadership skills, and learn to handle various difficulties and challenges properly. We encourage every student to actively join the student union, which is not only a stage for dedication and practice, but also an ideal place for us to exercise ourselves.
It's time for another year of student union changes. In mid-September, I-EP MYP held its student union election for this current school year. Children came on the stage one after another to deliver their election speeches. No matter what the result is, every one who stood on the stage is a brave "risk taker", and shines brightly.
In I-EP, we have five houses featuring both traditional culture and international elements. These are not only the identity symbols of I-EP, but also the cultural carriers of the school for breaking down grade barriers and bringing the younger and older students together. Each school year, we will elect corresponding student house captains and all our children will participate in various campus activities and tasks under the leadership of their house captains. It is our hope that more and more student leaders will emerge, thus further promoting I-EP as an active and positive community of learners.
A new school year, a new beginning, at the same time, I-EP MYP and PYP also carried out the election for the student captains of the five houses of this school year respectively. During the election, students were confident and determined, generous and calm, they showed their strengths and abilities, expressed their enthusiasm and strong desire to become student house captains, and promised to work hard to serve our schoolmates. Whether they were primary school students or secondary school students, everyone demonstrated their unique charisma and leadership potential.
The election was decided by student voting and teacher grading. Finally, with the teachers and students witnessing, MYP new student union members and MYP new house captains as well as PYP new house captains were came out.
Congratulations to everyone who has been elected, and I hope you will remember that being a student leader means that you will have more responsibility. Therefore, you have to do more and do better than others. We are confident that you will be able to do so! Through the implementation of leadership education, students will be able to discover their potentials, transcend themselves, and become capable and responsible leaders who will make more positive contributions to the development of society. I-EP will also continue to support the growth of students, provide more opportunities and platforms for leadership education, and spare no effort in promoting the comprehensive development of children.
