To promote democratic concepts and spirit among the children and to uphold the honour and integrity of being a student, every year student council members are appointed at the investiture ceremony of Saint Joseph’s School Barshi. The SJS Parliament helps determine the future direction and focus of St. Joseph’s School and creates an important connection between pupils and staff, ensuring their voices as St. Joseph’s students are being acted upon.

The role of parliament provides the opportunity for students to be educated and equipped for future roles outside of education.  Students will learn how they can effectively and efficiently carry out their responsibilities for the benefit of all. The role of parliament also brings out the students leadership qualities for higher responsibilities in future.  Serving in the Parliament will develop greater awareness of the rights of others, and what it means to work for not just your own goals but for those of your fellow students as well.
