The school parliament is the pupils’ body which meets once a week and allows pupils to communicate with school management and in democratic way to solve problems and satisfy pupils’ needs and interests. It motivates pupils to participate in school events and supports the ability of team work.
- The school parliament consists of one representative of each class from 6th to 10th grades elected by their classmates. These pupils represent the class in school parliament meetings and are obliged to report back to their classmates on the progress and results of them.
- They are elected for one school year but they may also be replaced if there are reasons to do so and the pupil’s council of the class votes for such a suggestion.
- During the meeting, a school parliament’s member can give any suggestion or question of his or her class that was approved in the class earlier.
