The sessions shed light on “the Student Parliament and its tasks, the culture of dialogue and listening, student leadership, student mediation, bullying within the school, its causes and methods of treatment, treatment of shyness and personal development, success industry” in addition to other topics that were addressed.
In turn, the student parliament coordinator, Suhail Abu Al-Araj said that ICSPR has held a meeting on Thursday evening entitled: The Importance of Leadership in Our Lives via (Google Meet), which targeted students of the Parliament of the New Gaza Primary Boys School (A).
The interactive meeting dealt with a number of important topics, most notably the definition of leadership, leadership qualities, who is the leader, the types of leaders, and the necessity of the leader’s interaction with others to accomplish the required tasks in the correct manner without dictatorship or transcendence over anyone, which makes the work lose its value.
