As talk of the presidential elections swept the country, RDF School Matendla also got in the spirit with their very own student elections. These parliamentary style elections are conducted annually to appoint the student leaders. The similarity to the Indian election system gives the students an understanding of the mechanics of democracy and pushes them to think about which virtues to look for while choosing a leader. The student leaders chosen need to communicate well with the students and help them in times of difficulty. The leaders meet once a month and discuss methods to improve all areas of school life and even domestic life. This makes students more responsible as well as instills in them leadership qualities.
