Deutsche Schule Erbil
As part of the school’s mission, students shall be enabled to participate in decision making processes, learn the values of democracy, and contribute to school life.
Every class has a representative and a deputy representative. On a regular basis, the representatives of all classes get together for a board meeting of the student body. It is the board’s task to represent the students’ interest towards teachers and the school leadership team and help mediate conflicts between students and/or students and teachers. The representatives also participate in organizing school events.
Every school year, the students elect a representative (and a deputy) for all students. This representative is responsible for organizing and chairing the meetings of the student body. The school leadership team meets with the representative regularly to discuss current issues and ideas for improvement.
Two teachers who were elected by the students support the representatives.
