Student Leadership

Elementary, Middle & High School Student Councils

STUDENTS TAKING THE LEAD

Student leaders at GEMS US are leaders on campus.  Statistically, in a smaller school, each child has a greater opportunity to lead and to lead in meaningful ways.  Some initiatives led by our student leaders include, but are not limited to:

  • Music Mondays - Tunes brighten everyone's day for 30 minutes before the start of school
  • Maker Mornings - A great initiative where students have the opportunity to build, create and discover 
  • Happiness Corners - Interactive spaces designed for students by students focusing on bringing joy and happiness to every day
  • Weekly Assemblies
  • Middle School Movie Night
  • Elementary School Movie Night
  • Dances
  • 8th Grade Graduation
  • Kindness Initiatives
  • Recycling 
  • Assisting the Parents Association with organizing and running school-wide events

Student Council members are encouraged to explore ideas and plan activities in the interest of creating a happier school environment for all students.  Student council is responsible for organizing the middle and high school weekly assemblies, and the monthly elementary Community Sharing Time.  Students organize educational presentations, games, and competitions to reinforce character education, kindness, and the School's mission, among other topics.    Student council members are also expected to foster strong student connections and community as the elected representatives of their classroom, grade, and/or division.

In addition to assisting our student community, student council members also engage in opportunities to give back to the greater Dubai community, whether through random acts of kindness, recycling, or lending a helping hand.
