The Primary and Secondary section have their own student government. Each student is assigned one of the four houses: Red, Blue, Green and Yellow. The student government comprises:
- Four Prefects in each classroom (one for each house)
- Four Head Prefect, overlooking the class prefects (one for each house)
- Head Boy/Vice Head Boy and Head Girl/Vice Head Girl overlooking the head prefects.
- Elections are held each year to elect the Head Boy/Vice Head Boy and Head Girl/Vice Head Girl. Only 7th and 12th grade students are eligible to run in the Primary Section and Secondary Section elections, respectively. The Head Boy/Vice Head Boy and Head Girl/Vice Head Girl candidates run the campaign in pairs. Campaigning involves making speeches, putting up posters in the school. During recess, candidates find a high spot in the playground and throw up home-made, scented confetti carrying their name up in the air. The supporters who would have gathered around the candidate try to grab the scented confetti.
