Student leadership programs

Student Council

Student Council is a fully functioning student body representation that allows senior class students to come up with their own initiatives, as well as carry out traditional ones. Student Council has 5 committees, a President, and a Vice-President, all of whom are elected by the whole school.

Student Council is the main platform for project-based learning. Among its objectives are complex problem solving, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration—all of the skills of the 21st century that are in high demand in modern day CEOs, corporate managers, educators, and business owners. These skills are also crucial if a student wants to receive an undergraduate education in prestigious universities around the world.

Student Council has its Charter and Code of Conduct and is run entirely by students with support from the Student Council Advisor.

Projects that are run by the SC are reflected in the New and Events section and on the Photo Wall as well as on Facebook and Instagram

TED-Ed Club

In 2017 the International School of Tomorrow received permission from TED LLC to use the TED-Ed Clubs curriculum and has since trained over 30 ISOT students in the art of giving TED talks. All talks have been approved and uploaded on the official TED-Ed Student Talks Youtube channel.

Two of our students’ talks have been called exemplary and were featured in TED newsletters. One of our students, Esther Burungibwe, was selected to give her talk at TED Headquarters in New York during the TED-Ed Weekend 2020. You can see photos from the trip in the Photo Wall section.

The TED-Ed Clubs program supports students in discovering, researching, exploring, and presenting their big ideas in the form of short, TED-style talks.

Charity Program

ISOT runs a series of projects that encourage empathy in our students as well as give real hands-on help to people who need it.

We hold charity bazaars, we volunteer, help raise awareness and promote charity work among other schools, we deliver goods and gifts to those in need.

Among the organizations that we help regularly are:

ROOTS Newspaper

ROOTS newspaper is a favorite read among students, teachers, and parents. Initiated and run entirely by students, it is printed quarterly and also has its own website.

Here students talk about school events, share their ideas on school policies, current tendencies, and burning issues. There are also fun pages and pages for students’ art.

All 3 volumes of ROOTS can be found online
