Student Empowerment: School Cabinet & Student Council at Chitkara International School, Panchkula
Students at Chitkara International School are earnestly encouraged to engage in both teamwork and leadership activities. While leadership and teamwork form integral part of the classroom experience at CIS, the school strongly motivates its students to undertake diverse yet exceptionally stimulating leadership tasks set in a more formalised and structured environment.
Through its Student Cabinet, the school aims to foster comfortable, confident and authentic individuals that are equipped with desired repertoire, compassion and attitude of an impressive leader. The membership of the esteemed cabinet further provides mind-altering experience to the students that enhances their decision-making capabilities and allows them to have a progressive and rational outlook.
Chitkara International School promotes the leadership of all styles and nature with utmost conviction in the significance of the same. It allows each and every child to undertake, engage in, and experience the role and responsibilities of a Head Boy, a Head Girl, a Joint Secretary, an Assistant Joint Secretary, a C.E.O (Chief Executive Officer), a V.P (Vice President) and a G.M. (General Manager) at least once during his/her tenure in the school. The selection of candidates is done through an all-inclusive procedure with the members of the cabinet belonging to the four different houses of the school viz. Steel Talkers, Brass Sounders, Zinc Thinkers and Copper Stoppers. The various roles and responsibilities certainly generate self-confidence and effectively ingrain the spirit of leadership in students.
INTRODUCTION TO THE HOUSES AND THEIR PHILOSOPHY:
ZINC THINKERS (Motto: “Stir up each project they undertake”)
Zinc Thinkers are the students who can comprehensively ponder on all the essential aspects and behave as catalysts for their teams’ performance. With their thinking cells ticking along with healing and resistant powers at work, they would stir up each project they undertake to give a silver lining to it, under any circumstances.
BRASS SOUNDERS (Motto: “Spread a wave of happiness and celebration”)
Brass has the distinction of avoiding tarnish, to remain sparkling eternally. The members reflect back this property in every field of play to show an all-round growth and development. Like the metal alloy, the brass sounders pick out all the great & good qualities from within to outshine others.
COPPER STOPPERS (Motto: “Spread their radiance all around”)
Copper as a metal has been streaming and conducting electrifying properties since ages. The members of the house tend to show the same through the conduction and flow of energy, power and progression with ease and excellence.
STEEL TALKERS (Motto: “Perseverance conquers”)
The members of Steel Talkers are the ones who deliver influential talks. They would throw a deep impact on the listeners and keep their grey cells ticking. Steel is refining, flexible yet infused with strength. The members replicate the properties by showing the required balance of flexibility and strength during trying times and healthy competition.
