Student Council at Hsinchu County American School
At Hsinchu County American School (HCAS), student council members are elected every academic year to represent the student body and to serve as a channel for communication for administration and other stakeholders of the community. Student Council provides unique opportunity to put forward the issues and policies that matter to students. As originally espoused by John Dewey, student council activities often engage students in learning about democracy and leadership.
HCAS expects our student council members to voice their opinions and concerns in a polite and confident manner to our parents, teachers, admins and fellow student body. Therefore, we anticipate HCAS student council members to demonstrate higher level of maturity in character and merit in academics. The goals and purposes of special councils and associations in the school are to build up our community in the spirit of collaboration and democracy. We anticipate constructive voices which will help move the school forward in a positive manner. Student council members should not trivialize democracy, but rather cherish it.
