New kids on the block

In May, the DHPS had its annual Student Representative Council (SRC) election for grade nine to ten. The SRC’s main objective is to represent the DHPS learners, to take their requests into consideration in school activities and to implement them in their projects.

This year there were 12 contestants but only six were lucky enough to be chosen by the learners of DHPS: Temwani Bruhns (public relations), Pendapala Shikwambi (head boy), Kevin Theodore (deputy treasurer), Konstantin Schindler (deputy public relations), Jessica Rösemann (treasurer) and Kaylissa Hein (secretary). There are currently 12 members of the SRC for 2019/2020.

The rest of the Students Representative Council consists of Lucia Lasso Drews (head girl), Tuli Nghaamwa (deputy head girl), Marlon Reinhard (deputy head boy), Henner Pade (IT manager), Imãn Dundee (deputy IT manager) and Tiana Esslinger (deputy public relations). In response to being asked various questions pertaining to their responsibilities - if they work well with each other, what the best part of being in the SRC, what they found unpleasant, if they felt appreciated, if they were planning anything and if it took more time out of their lives than they wanted – these were some of their responses:

· “I enjoy working with the other members as everyone brings a certain skill to the table and it has been a great year thus far. Being in the SRC does not require much sacrifice, it is all about learning how to manage your time,” says Tuli Nghaamwa. For her, the best part of being a SRC member is being challenged to face her difficulties and fears by working to the best of her ability. When asked what she disliked she said that it comes with difficulties and pleasing everyone is not easy. She said that she feels appreciated by those around her.

· The head boy, Penda, feel the weight of knowing that a large majority of the school trusts him. “I think the SRC works well together as a team.” For him, the best part about being a SRC member was to plan events and watch them become a success. What he finds most unpleasant is that everyone complains directly to him instead of making use of the letterbox as they should. He says that they are planning something that will be quite some fun.

· Konstantin said that he feels humbled and proud. He thinks that the best part of being an SRC member is just the experience and he finds nothing unpleasant about being part of the team. He said that he mostly feels appreciated and that his position does not require more time than he expected.

· Another member of the public relations branch of the SRC, Tiana, says the best part about being an SRC member is working and planning an event, and seeing it become a success. She finds the numerous complaints from students a bit of a challenge, especially in light of how much effort they put into the events.

Overall, DHPS is very lucky to have a Students´ Representative Council that is always trying its best to fulfil its duties and stand up for the learners.
