All learners are encouraged to think about becoming a member of Student Council. It is a fantastic role within the school community. It’s fun. It’s rewarding. It’s a positive learning space.
Student Council helps shape the school community into a positive and supportive place to be. Learners that participate in Student Council learn lifelong skills including management, leadership, planning, promotion, accounting, writing skills, public speaking skills, and design while learning how to become professional. As well, they get to showcase and develop their creativity, critical thinking skills, and adaptability. Teamwork and support are skills that students learn.
Student Council relies on itself to make sure events are run smoothly. For that to happen, learners take charge and see the task through by meeting independent goals, trusting themselves and each other, and respectfully working together to have a dynamic sense of cohesion. Learners who participate in Student Council take pride in themselves. They develop a new sense of respect that extends beyond school. They begin to see themselves as part of a bigger picture. They become more responsible youth and feel ready to tackle new challenges with confidence.
Being a Student Council member means that students become more aware of the world beyond the classroom doors. They see the world as an opportunity in which to thrive.
Becoming a leader has never been more exciting.

Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people ages 12 to 18. Interact clubs are sponsored by individual Rotary clubs, which provide support and guidance, but they are self-governing and self supporting. Windsor Preparatory School is happy to announce that The Rotary Club of Nassau Sunrise will be sponsoring our school.
Rotary International has been making history and bringing our world closer together for over 100 years. Since forming in 1905, they’ve taken on some of the world’s toughest challenges and helped a wide range of international and service organizations—from the UN to Easter Seals—get started.
We are looking for learners who want to join together to tackle the issues in our community that they care most about. Through Interact, we can:
- carry out hands-on service projects;
- make international connections;
- develop leadership skills; and
- have fun!
We look to create positive change by carrying out two service projects a year: one that helps our school or community and one that promotes international understanding. Service projects are an effective way for your child to take action at home and abroad, connect with other young leaders, and get members excited about our club.
Through these efforts, Interactors develop a network of friendships with local and overseas clubs and learn the importance of:
- developing leadership skills and personal integrity;
- demonstrating helpfulness and respect for others;
- understanding the value of individual responsibility and
- hard work;
- advancing international understanding and goodwill.
As one of the most significant and fastest-growing programs of Rotary service, with more than 10,700 clubs in 109 countries and geographical areas, Interact has become a worldwide phenomenon. Almost 200,000 young people are involved in Interact.
