EIS SCHOUL promotes participatory citizenship education by setting up institutions in which pupils can experience that their voice, their projects and their actions matter.
The pupils’ parliament meets every Wednesday afternoon and of each class there are two representatives.
Within the parliament, pupils learn to express themselves within the limits of respect towards others, to manage conflicts, to discuss their opinions and to compare their thoughts to those of others.
Teachers and educational staff support the pupils in their discussions. They assist, listen, encourage, analyze and identify children’s responsibilities. They ensure that everyone's rights are respected and support students not only in finding solutions but also in implementing solutions.
