The election for student council concluded on the 13th of April. Our 10 brave and outstanding candidates have shown the students their excellence skills and determinations. They are great Risk-takers and Communicators. Four of them were chosen by students to be the member of the new student council. The new student council is then officially in charge!
The four new student council members are, President Chelsea Chen, Vice-President Yuya Itokawa, Secretary Kate Judith Reidinger and Treasurer Scott Liu.
Chelsea and Yuya as the president and vice-president, have exhibited many impressive ideas and plans to the student group. In their speech, they addressed some issues around the schools and formulated plans to solve them. One memorable example is their plan of having new water cooler at the basketball court. There is always need for cold water while doing any sport in Singapore. The demand has been noticed and will be fulfilled. Also, they have been working collaboratively with the marketing team to run the ISS Official Snapchat Team, making it possible to launch next semester. Chelsea and Yuya will be the brain of the new student council, leading the students to unite the community.
Kate has always been a communicator in our school. She often seeks for opportunities to know the people around her better. Also, Kate has participated in many ECA activities to serve the community. As the secretary, she will be the eyes and ears of the new student council so that students can provide feedback, ask questions or give suggestions. This is both a suitable job and an excellent challenge for her. Kate will do her best.
Scott is our treasurer. He is principled, organized and highly effective. Both of his double science courses and higher level math has made him sensitive to numbers. This will definitely help him in accounting. Scott will be the vein of the new student council as he must collect and control every single penny that they gain, or lose. His job requires him to be highly skilled to do it right, but he tries his best, just like he always does.
For now, the new student council is working on the production of senior hoodies. Let’s congratulate them once again and hope they do a wonderful job this year!
