At AIS-Salzburg, student council is an assembly of representatives from each class that speak on the behalf of the student body. In addition to that, student council has a president, vice-president, a secretary, a treasurer, and a day student representative. All together, we are a group of students that impact the school’s environment.
Student Council organizes different projects and activities in the school for the good of students and the surroundings. For example, last year, one of the biggest accomplishments of student council was renovating the student lounge. This year, we worked with the organization called Christmas Child Operation. Anyone who wished to participate received a special shoebox that they would have to fill with different things for underprivileged children throughout the world. The project was a success -more than half of the school participated in the project. In addition to that, our annual activities include: Barbeques, Bakesales, Halloween Candy Grams, Casino Nights, roses for St. Valentine’s Day, Spirit Week, among others.
Our goal is to bring the student body together and make the school a better place. Therefore, each student is able to approach one of the representatives and inform something he or she wants to be changed, and we would do our best to achieve the resolution of the problem.
