At ISCS-The British School of Zug, we endeavour to create a positive atmosphere in which children feel safe, happy and secure and can take full advantage of the opportunities for learning. We also encourage children to develop their self-discipline and self-esteem as they grow within our school community. The House System is here to contribute to this, having 4 main goals:
To enable children to understand their responsibilities in managing their own behaviour in respect of their attitudes to learning; their relationships with adults and other children; and care for their own property and the property of others;
To encourage children to participate in establishing expectations of positive behaviour during lessons and around the school and to fulfil these expectations;
To encourage children to discuss aspects of their own behaviour and that of others; to recognise and comment constructively on positive behaviour and suggest ways that they might improve their own or the behaviour of others and to enable children to understand the system of rewards and consequences (please see Behaviour Policy) within the school.
Monthly events and inter-house competitions beginning in October will be held to enable students to represent their houses in different activities to ascertain more points for their houses
Our 4 houses are as follows:
The Students Council members at ISCS are exceptionally positive role models who are the keystone of promoting our positive school values and are paramount in supporting the staff and students on a daily basis. Students are eligible to apply if they meet the criteria relating to attendance, punctuality and behaviour records and if they feel they have the qualities needed to be successful in the role. Students complete a written application outlining their qualities and their leadership skills and should submit this to the Head of High School and School Head. A formal interview process is held for those students shortlisted for the role with members of the SLT.
The Students Council is the students’ voice at school, giving proposals to always continue to offer the best learning environment to our students. This Students Council is formed by the different House Captains, Class Representatives, and the Head Boy and Head Girl.
