We are making a difference, one small step at a time.
As members of the Brotherhood Executive Committee, our main goal is to fulfill our classmates' needs and wants. We aim to focus on the issues that directly affect and concern them the most. We commit ourselves to working hard, so as to ensure that everyday school life runs smoothly and successfully and that our school becomes a better place for all of us. Yet, at the same time, we want to give back to our community through the various events we organise. We stand true to our school's motto: 'To Grow and to Serve.
The Student Brotherhood body plays an integral and important role in the school community. It is an honour for me to be elected as the Brotherhood president and be given the opportunity to become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with the school management, teachers and parents for the benefit of the school and its students. As the president of this body I feel the commitment to do my best to resolve problems, inform the school administration of ideas emanating from the student body, create a better environment for my classmates and the future generations to come. Furthermore, through my role I would take the opportunity to serve our community through the various events we plan to organize and stand true to our school’s motto: “To Grow and to Serve”.
Michalis Efstathiades (Year 7) President
As the Vice-president of the school I intend to bring an increasingly collaborative nature to the school’s council and ensure that there is strong communication between the class representatives and the school’s council. Working to the best of my ability with the committee to address the personal issues and concerns of the students and try to resolve them, is a priority and a commitment of mine. Throughout the years, the committee has worked along the Senior Management Team to successfully voice the students’ interests and overcome issues threatening the school’s stable environment. To say I am thankful for the opportunity I had to attend one of the leading school’s in Cyprus, is an understatement; being part of the AAL family has helped me grow, mature, and now I am ready to serve.

How to join the Brotherhood
It feels good to be a part of a team that is motivated to create positive change within the school, and in the community, and joining the Brotherhood team, will really gratify students who passionately believe in making a difference. To join the Brotherhood, you need to be elected as a class representative in your mentor class. During the first semester, elected representatives along with the Brotherhood Executive Committee attend two-day conference that is focused on raising student issues and concerns and also decides on the official campaigns for the academic year.
Becoming a part of the Brotherhood Executive Committee is a big responsibility, and one that students enjoy taking on. The elected president of the school is always a Year 7 student, and the election is often preceded by speeches from the candidates, through which they express their contributions to the School, as well as their goals for the academic year. The remaining positions are taken up by representatives from Years 4 to 6, and follow a school-wide voting procedure that usually takes place in October.
