A mock election
School Elections Gives students a unique opportunity to represent their peers and bring about the changes they would not like to see at the Vidyalaya. Standing in a student election and becoming a students' union officer can significantly boost ones career.
Representing the academic interests of students is at the heart of all students. Being a student representative is so rewarding, especially when you see the change and the impact that you're having on students during their time at School.
Taking a more active role also allows students to interact with students from a variety of different backgrounds and this can result in strong, long-lasting friendships. They'll work with a diverse range of people, including academics, university senior management, university staff, union staff, the wider community and importantly, the eclectic make-up of students.
