Pupils' Governance Opportunity

The elementary pupils are given an opportunity to develop their self-confidence, leadership and even their skill on decision making. And this is through a pupil government.

Along this premise, the Department of Education (DepEd) issued DepEd Order No. 45, s. 2007, dated July 9, 2007, institutionalization of the Supreme Government in all elementary school nationwide. The DepEd has recognized the need for the pupils to organize a pupil governing body which will carry their ideals, principles and practice of participatory democracy and citizenship and serve as a venue for them to develop their leadership and social skills.

  1. These pupils manifested their desires to lead through influencing youngsters. In the future, for sure, they will lead others.

  2. Kids who are voted and are qualified would have higher self confidence as they grow up and become better leaders in the society.

  3. So I guess, we called it Supreme Student Council when I was in grade school. This is a right training for the students and youngsters to be responsible :)

  4. Being part of the pupil government can really be a good training ground for future leaders.

  5. I remember my humble elementary and High School Days in the province. Yeap, I am an active student leader and writer for student org. Kudos to the new and young leaders. They are indeed the hope of this country!

  6. It is always best to encourage students in the aspect of leadership to prepare them for bigger roles in the future.

  7. This post reminds me of my high school days because I'm also an active student leader. I can still remember how to lead students and make projects for the community.

  8. I think kids these days show a lot of maturity. Letting them govern themselves is good exercise for them.

    1. I am not an active student leader when I was in Elementary and Highschool. I am glad that there are activities like this at schools nowadays which will help the kids be more confident to govern themselves.
