Kuwait English School has a well-established Student Representative Council [SRC], with a strong tradition of organising events to raise money for charity.
Each year the students elect a Chairperson and Deputy Chair along with an Executive Committee and representatives from each form and each year group. The whole committee meets once a week to discuss all issues from school improvements through to fun events and they also discuss the charities they want to support for the year.
Over the years they have organised events such as Mufti days, Red nose day, Moustache Day, Masterchef, arm wrestling, wet sponge throwing, Talent shows, musical shows and much more besides.
The charities the students have chosen to support this year (2015-2016) are:
1. Sheikh Abdullah Al Nouri Charity Society Kuwait-KUWAIT
2. Bayt Abdullah Hospice Kuwait (care for Children/palliative care
3. Invisible Children (invisiblechildren.com) [group dedicated to
preventing/rescuing child soldiers in Africa]-INTERNATIONAL
4. Palestine Children’s Relief Fund -INTERNATIONAL
