High School Student Council
At Skagerak International School we prepare you for studies or work anywhere in the world. We help you set your ambitions – and reach them.
Student Council Role
The high school student council has a significant role of representing student opinion in school matters. The president meets with the principal regularly to deal with student issues and attends the school’s board meetings with the right to voice an opinion. The council is also responsible for many social activities during the school year including the Christmas Ball, Ski Day and participation in the 17th May parade.
The student council election takes place every year in September. Meetings are held every second week.
“The Student Council’s primary role is to represent the student body in school matters, making sure that the students are both heard and considered. We are responsible for bringing the opinions of the student body to the administration, creating projects to strengthen the school community, and finding solutions to facilitate the school day. When electing representatives, each class designates their voice to the council. This emphasizes the importance of the Student Council, as it creates a system of trust between the students and the school. We are the symbol of school democracy.“
-Lars Gabrielsen( HS President)
