HXIS, as an institution, believes in the democratic process which is the essence of the election process of the Student Council. Each year, an elected Student Council is involved in the functioning of the school and in building better relationships between the students and school leadership and faculty.

Students also have extensive opportunities to develop and exercise leadership skills by participating in the independent organisation of school events through the academic year. They also proactively engage in special interest clubs and societies to enhance their talents and leadership skills.
