On Monday the 22nd of August 2011, the Student Council held its first event – the Ice Cream Social. By basically digging into the StuCo’s pockets, we provided free ice cream as a welcome back present to the rest of the high school during lunch.
By doing this, we hoped to promote the image of StuCo – by being able to host an event on the first Monday back from summer vacation, we wanted to create an uplifting, positive atmosphere for the students, especially the new incoming ones.
About 3000¥ was spent in buying chocolate and vanilla ice cream popsicles on Sunday, all of which was gobbled up by the sweet-toothed high school students.
The event was planned as a surprise, and while a lot of students appreciated the free ice cream, they did not seem to understand the purpose too well (fair enough, who randomly gives out free ice cream?)
All in all however, the first impression of the Student Council 2011-2012 was made with this event, and we hope that with this, we have caused interest in the student body for the upcoming “Da Dance” event on September 2, 2011.
