Selection_035MOSCOW’S YOUNGEST SCHOOL PRINCIPAL (but only for a day!)

Serving the international community in Moscow, English International School has a curriculum ensuring leadership opportunities for students. Recently EIS Moscow South-West was accepted to join the scheme Student Principal for a Day by Principals Australia Institute, becoming the first participant school outside Australia.

In a scrupulously fair election after hustings, our one and only Australian student – Nic in Year 5 – was elected as Student Principal with other members of Years 5 and 6 being Vice Principals for the day.

A programme of activities involving Nic throughout the day covered all parts of the school: lesson observations, communication with parents, meetings with PTA, and a Skype conversation with Head Office in UK. We could not fit everything in on the day so other plans included giving a guided tour of the campus to the Australian Consul later in the week.

Nic summing up the experience: “I especially enjoyed observing lessons. I was able to see how the children worked in class and how the age of the child altered the style of the lessons. It was a great day!”
