The Voice of the Student Body
Crescent's Student Council is a student-led organization whose mission is to nurture passionate and kind lady leaders who possess a strong sense of integrity and moral courage. Our councillors also aim to develop a forward-looking and positive mindset. With the constant drive to become compassionate servant leaders of the school, councillors develop the heart to serve and guide others, as well as strive to display the five pillars of servant leadership along with PERMAH domains under any circumstance.
As ladies and leaders of tomorrow, the Student Council believes in serving with dedication, commitment and love to ensure the well-being of our community. Being the bridge of communication for the student body to the teachers and school leaders, student councillors actively reach out to their peers to hear their concerns through platforms like the Student Leaders’ Forum as well as informal feedback settings within their classrooms, or when mingling with schoolmates. After receiving these responses, appropriate actions will be taken address the issues raised, as student councillors are constantly seeking to work with the teachers in improving the Crescent experience.
Crescent’s Student Councillors take on a kaleidoscope of dynamic roles in the varied job scope they . Through collaboration within the Student Council departments such as Council Affairs, Events Management, Leadership Development, Student Well-being and Student Management, they extend their service as servant leaders to provide support and serve the school holistically. Along with their fundamental role to uphold school discipline standards through administrative duties like spot-check duties, class cleanliness tally and late coming duties, they also lead the school community through leadership nurturing activities for others and themselves. They are also actively involved in organizing school-wide events such as the annual and Teachers’ Day Celebration. Such planning and organizing allows councillors to take the initiative to brainstorm creative ideas, contributing to the events and provides them with the learning experience of being able to plan more independently.
Besides working with fellow student leaders within the Student Council, Crescent Student Councillors are also given opportunities to reach out and collaborate with other student leadership organizations such as the Peer Leaders, Ambassadors and the House Leaders in events like the Student Leadership Conference, Week and the Student Leaders' Investiture.
Even the pandemic, the Student Council has reacted quickly and continued the weekly Thursday meetings online. Despite events such as having to be conducted in classrooms rather than the usual hall setting, our Student Councillors were creative and innovative in finding methods to engage students so that they could still enjoy the events in the comfort of their classrooms. Although it was challenging at first as our student councillors had to think on their feet, it taught them to think out of the box, be adaptable and prepare for the unexpected.
Councillors' leadership training is not only limited to workshops held for the councillors, but it also extends to councillors having peer teaching sessions on lessons about leadership from the book: “Habitudes: Images that form Leadership Habits & Attitudes” by Dr Tim . These trainings and workshops allow councillors to be equipped with the heart of a servant leader and better demonstrate the 5 leadership pillars in their everyday service to the school.
, the reasons for Student Council being so bonded and close-knitted would be because of the regular weekly meetings that are held. During meetings, councillors experience a variety of activities that allow them to bond and grow into better ladies and leaders. For instance, the Mentor-mentee system pairs upper-secondary councillors with lower-secondary councillors and creates Mentor-mentee families for councillors to bond across levels. There are also bonding games that are carried out during meetings, allowing councillors to spend quality time with their fellow batchmates and forge indelible ties with their councilmates.
All in all, the Student Council provides a wide range of activities for their councillors to take part in and grow as leaders of the future.

Student Council has not only provided me countless opportunities to plan events to contribute to the school, but it has also helped me discover so much more about myself. Through our reflections and feedback sessions conducted by seniors and Council Masters (CMs), it has shed light on the flaws I have as a leader that I usually overlook. Student Council has been a safe space for me to work on those flaws and improve myself as a student and as a leader. The 4 years spent in Student Council has been an experience that has changed my outlook on what a student leader really is. All of the memories, relationships and feedback have been held close to my heart and is a stepping stone in my journey as a Student Leader which I will bring forward to my future endeavours."
