The applications have been reviewed by various staff members and interviews have happened for some of the positions. Every member of the elementary school got to vote for their POD captain. Please read on to find out a little bit more about each role and who the successful candidates were.

 

5th grade student leaders

Elementary School Positions of responsibility have been created as a chance for students to develop leadership skills and allow them to ‘give back’ to their school community. ISP believes that they need to experience duties and responsibilities that come with being a member of a community in order to help them prepare to play an active role as citizens.

 

A leader’s role is varied and to be awarded a position is considered to be a real privilege. The position not only allows them to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility, it also enables younger students to learn from them.

 

As a leader they will be expected to:

o    show exemplary behaviour and attitude.

o   lead by positive example in terms of behaviour and academic achievement all of the time.

o    promote the ISP character profile.

o    act as ambassadors for the school.

o   act as guides for visitors.

o   help younger children to play and sort out minor arguments.

o be a buddy to lonely children.

o encourage all students to walk around the school sensibly.

o ensure that completing their role has a positive impact on your learning.


The students in 5th grade have spent the last week applying for various roles and even coming up with a new role that they think will help the elementary school. The applications have been reviewed by various staff members and interviews have happened for some of the positions. Every member of the elementary school got to vote for their POD captain.
