In the first Unit of Inquiry this school year, the grade 5 students learned about decision making and government. As part of this unit, they wrote campaign speeches to share their ideas for how we could make our school even better and why they felt they would be a good Student Council candidate. Now the PYP Student Council has been chosen! We are so excited to see what will be accomplished this year!

When students were chosen for Student Council, it was because the other students agreed that they have leadership skills and good ideas for our school. There were candidates that were close to getting the number of votes and we are sure that they can support the student council with putting the plans in place.
We have seen this year’s student council group already taking amazing initiative. With the festive season upon us, the student council members wanted to collect food for the food bank. We hope that the International School Utrecht Community will rally together to make it a successful food drive.
Let us introduce you to the 2022-2023 Student Council members:
Hello, my name is Yiannis, elected in the student council with 10 and most votes. I am in grade 5 white. I am the treasurer, and I am also looking for a second job because I want to work more. I’m looking forward to changing the football timetable.
Hello, my name is Graham, and I am in grade 5 white. In the student council I work on technology and creativity. I would like to change some things in school like the hooks and bathrooms.
Hi, I am Zeynep. I am in Grade 5 white. I am really happy to be in the student council. I am so excited in every single meeting because I get to share my ideas and my friends’ ideas. Our school can be improved in many ways, for example, my best idea is to make school teams for sports, but currently we are working on the food drive. Lastly, I would like to say that as the student council we would like to help you.
Hello, my name is Ria and I am the communicator and spokesperson of the student council.
