Student Union 


 

The Student Union aims to nurture students’ leadership skills as well as their sense of autonomy, cooperation and civic consciousness; facilitate students’ exploration of their potential and develop their sense of belonging to the school. Also, it aims to organise activities and offer students welfare in accordance with the school’s principles.

The Student Union encourages students to voice their opinions to improve communication between the school and students for creating a harmonious campus. As students’ representatives, the Student Union committee members organise various activities to enrich their school life. They also give opinions on the school policies and systems, hoping to enhance students' sense of belonging to the school.

 

There were four houses at the opening of our school. In order to further cultivate the leadership skills of our students, we established the Joint House Association in 1992-1993 in preparation for the establishment of the Student Union. The Joint House Association gradually functioned as a Student Union, and the President was elected among the executive committee members of the four houses. The Students Union was formally established in 1999-2000. The Student Union Executive Committee, led by the President and two Vice-Presidents, under which there are four divisions:

  • Division of Academic and Cultural Affairs
  • Division of Promotion and Publicity
  • Division of Joint House Affairs
