City Pride School is always a step ahead in providing experiential learning to its students. The school has a Student Council Department which constitutes the elected members that represent the students and participate in various activities, acting as proactive leaders, volunteers into various programmes organized in the school throughout the year. This is to give a lesson in good governance and democratic practices to the students. Each year the students of City Pride vote using the traditional paper ballot method. However this year three Techno wizards Anish Deshpande , Shrirang Pund from class IX and Ved Khandekar from Class X took upon themselves the responsibility of giving the school the experience of Electronic Voting. These students created software wherein students and teachers voted together and the results were declared immediately.

According to the school procedure, election guidelines are displayed everywhere in the school. Those students, who consider themselves eligible, file their nominations with their class teachers. The nominated candidates have to go through a written test. The shortlisted students through this test are further interviewed by a panel of experts. Those that score the highest in this interview start canvassing for themselves. They declare their symbols and agenda to the voters, as it happens in real life. Then the election dates are declared. Students as well as teachers vote for the school ministers as well as head boy and Head Girl. The results are declared in the last week of April. The elected members are felicitated and sworn in an elaborate ceremony – The Investiture Ceremony in June.

In 2014, 3 years ago, when there was scarcity of water throughout the city, City Pride School also found it difficult to implement the daily chores like watering the plants, cleaning the floors/washrooms, washing hands..The teachers of City Pride School observed that irrespective of this scarcity, students were wasting water from their water bottle. The Environment Committee of the school which has teachers as well as student representatives gave it a thought. The number of students of the school goes around 1670 and if each child has 1/4th of water left in his bottle, it would amount to nearly 1 lakh litres of water been wasted everyday, which was a huge loss. Taking this thought into account,
One of the steps towards saving water, was discussed, asking the students to pour the water left in their water bottle into the buckets kept near the exit on the ground floor at the end of the school. This collected water is utilised to water the garden, clean the washrooms/classrooms and mopping the floors when there is scarcity of water
This is been consistently followed since 2014. This learning has been shared by the students at their respective homes.
