UNICEF Rights Respecting School

Article 12    (respect for the views of the child) - Every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously. This right applies at all times, for example during immigration proceedings, housing decisions or the child’s day-to-day home life.

Kingsbury High School students have just completed their first round of Student Council meetings. The process started in September with every form group democratically elected two students to be their Student Councillors.  These Students then led Form Time sessions gathering their peers responses on three agenda items: 
  • Agenda Point 1 - How can we make our school more environmentally friendly? (e.g. reduce single use plastic, recycling etc)
  • Agenda Point 2 - What do you think of the new praise and rewards system? What’s going well? Even better if?  
  • Agenda Point 3 - What can we do as a school to get more involved in local, national and international charity work?

Student Councillors met with their Year Leaders to collate all of the responses and possible solutions from their year group. As a result, thirteen Student Councillors across all year groups met at the Whole School Council to come up with common issues and solutions to present to the Senior Leadership Team. 

Ines Ben Nasr (7U),  Darian Amin (9C),   Fawziya Haji (9U) and   Ronesh   Jagatheeis (12MBO) were selected to present the findings of the Whole School Council to the Senior Leadership Team. Student Councillors presented confidentially and passionately a formal presentation, impressing all Senior Leaders with the maturity in which they answered follow-up questions.
