CVL - Student Council

Dialogue, exchange, debate

Dialogue, exchange, debate

The CVL (Student Council) is composed of ten elected students, half of whom are replaced every year and representatives from the staff and the parents. Together they make proposals about all topics regarding their daily life in school.

Exchanging to improve the students' well being at school

School guidance, school rules, academic support, health, sports activities, cafeteria…: the CVL is the venue where all the tangible questions regarding life in the school are debated.

Goal: to better take into consideration the expectations of the students and improve their well being at school.

The CVL is a privileged venue to exchange with and be listened to by adults from the educational community. The elected representatives can freely express their ideas: they relay the expectations and concerns of all the students.

Participating in decisions

The CVL also stands as a driving force for proposals. Student representatives can give opinions, propose adjustments and suggest solutions. The minutes of the CVL are then transmitted to the Educational Committee. Through their elected representatives, students are involved in the decision-making process of the School.

Specific feature: the Lycée Français de Singapour

In our school, students from 6e (grade 6) to Terminale (grade 12) elect 2 students from Middle School (3e - grade 9) and 8 students from High School.
