STUDENT COUNCIL

JMIS attaches great importance to inculcation of leadership skills in children and has devised many programmes for imparting leadership training, chief among them being our students’ Executive Body. From Class III onwards, pupils in each section elect two CRs (Class Representatives) and four House Prefects (once again guided by the policy of maximum participation rather than minority elitism), each in charge of six different areas such as discipline, cleanliness, etc. The final selection is through secret ballot, are like our Assembly Elections at the state level.

All elected leaders become the active members of student council. Children are helped to arrive at a definition of the role and responsibilities of leaders, traits that they must possess and how to grow into such a role.

Those elected from their classes then vote for the Head Boy and Head Girl. Those who are CRs of Class X & XI can stand for this position. Candidates for this position present their manifestoes at the school assembly. They are then allowed to campaign abiding strictly by the rules laid down by the school. Once elected she/he chooses her/his cabinet comprising of the following area-representatives:
•    Discipline
•    Sports
•    Science
•    Literary Affairs
•    Art & Culture
•    Programme Implementation
•    External Affairs
•    Current Affairs
•    School Facilities
•    Coordination of Class Representatives
•    Bulletin Boards

The Executive meets regularly for two hours after school on Saturdays. It helps the school community in a number of ways such as maintaining discipline and regularization of traffic, checking late comers and uniforms, organization of cultural activities and Activity Week. Young leaders learn to set goals, plan and work accordingly, foresee problems and take care of them, develop resourcefulness and courage to tackle unforeseen situations, acquire communication skills, understand people and learn to get along with them, learn to be sensitive to other’ opinions and respect them.

A mini Student-Executive is established in the Junior School. Leaders of Class V constitute this, and are headed by Junior Head Boy and Junior Head Girl from Class V.

The student leadership programme includes:

•    The-Student-Council:
The Student Council takes shape in the month of April, with students of grade V, X, XI & XII exhibiting leadership, sportsmanship, responsibility, sensitivity, integrity among other traits in a greater measure than their peers becoming proud members of this student leadership body. The Student Council consists of the School head boy, head girl, vice head boy, vice head girl, cultural secretary, sports captain & Vice-captain, House Captains and Vice Captains of all four houses 

•    The Editorial Board, again with members drawn from grade V, X & XI works towards school magazine and the students’ newsletters.

•    Classroom Programmes that encourage the development of leadership skills:
•    Grades Ankur & Pallav have
•    Line Monitors and Rear Guards
•    House In charge of the day
•    Helpers of the day
•    Buddy System

•    In addition to the above, grades I & II have Young brigade comprising of Monitors of the Day, White board-in- charge, lunch monitor etc.

•    All grades from III-XII have Class Representatives and house prefects.

A WORD TO PARENTS
In order to conceive our vision for overall development of children, parents too is expected to visualize the learning process with a progressive outlook.

•    Please do lots of reading and discussion with your child, make them think, analyze and introspect.
•    Do several learning activities to relate the concepts in books to real life.
•    While discussing a topic with the child, enjoy the learning and focus on clarity of concept and understanding of the content in the lesson. Never encourage your child to mug up meaninglessly.
•    Please monitor the kind of language child uses and the company he/she follows. 
•   Encourage creative writing, attempting to answer new questions or questioning in different ways. Child may commit a few mistakes, may earn a lesser grade but eventually he/she would develop a thinking and analytical mind. Is that not what we want to see in our kids? So please don’t panic over 1 or 2 marks, A or B grades. Enjoy and acknowledge the process of learning. Believe me, particularly in this age group, ‘conceptual clarity’ and ‘developing a thinking mind’ are important, rather than the marks & grades.
•    Excursions & visits would be an integral part of our learning programme, some special thematic visits could be paid visits too and I would like to see all our children joining all such real life exposures.
•    Activities and events would also be the extremely enriching components of our curriculum which leads to all round development of child’s personality. All the children will take part in Morning Assembly, presentations and other activities. So please contribute promptly towards all such activities without a second thought.
•    Try your best to give English Speaking Environment to children at home too as the language is not taught but caught. At school, children are surely being exposed to English language in several ways and a good number of our children do understand and converse in English fairly well. However, some are the first generation learners and are in the process of picking up the language fluently.
In the class rooms, the overall transaction, by practice, is in English. However, for the clear understanding of concepts, teachers do need to go bilingual at times. The concept clarity is certainly the most important focus point.
•    Syllabus has been planned very thoughtfully. But at times, children take more time to understand a topic, than expected. In such a case, thorough understanding of the concept would be the priority, and we would not prefer to run mindlessly with the syllabus. Parents are expected to understand and acknowledge that children learn at different paces which cannot be always pre calculated. However, formal intimation would be given, wherever and whenever necessary.
•    Do work regularly with the children, in a pleasant way. Discipline them through role modeling. Children may not do what you say, but they surely catch what you do. 
•    There is a lot of violence, excessive media exposure and degenerating value systems around our children. At times, this brings a lot of negativity, restlessness and short attention span in children. So, please limit and monitor the quality of T.V. programmes they watch. Instead, give your quality time to children. Read, interact, play or go outdoors with them. Involve them in the daily chores you do. Let them feel a part and take responsibility. 
•    Discipline them gently yet firmly by following a well structured itinerary at home. Take all the necessary activities into account. Most importantly, be consistent. Say what you mean and mean what you say.
•    Do respect your child’s temple of learning, his/her school. Be positive and supportive towards all the programmes initiated by school.
•    Be constructive and volunteering towards all the activities of school curriculum.
•    Parents must keep on revising and helping their words on per teacher’s instruction. It should be according to the methods used in class. There is no need to run ahead of the syllabus. There in no hurry. Let the child learn at his/her pace. 
•    Create a good and conducive atmosphere at home and be a role model. The child ways learns from what his/her parents do, how they talk, how they behave, the language they use etc.
•    Encourage the child to wish you and other family members in the morning and before sleeping. Motivate the child to greet the guests and serve them water etc. make sure that you behave in the similar manner, in front of the child.
•    Parents must respect each other and respect child’s teachers and school so that the child imbibes nigh kind of values. 
•    Please make sure that the child is always regular and punctual to school.
