The student representative council (SRC) is made up of a group of seven students who want to help other students by presenting ideas which are of benefit to all students, to the School Council. The SRC also informs its peers of any important information which affects the student body.
All students were asked if they wanted to be a part of the SRC. All students that were interested created posters to show the qualities that they have that would make them excellent SRC members. All the students then voted on which students they wanted in our SRC.
The SRC meets once a fortnight to discuss issues relevant to our school. One teacher is responsible for running the meetings. This ‘hands-on' approach allows staff to keep in close contact with student concerns. It is the duty of the SRC representatives to seek input from their class members and to report back following meetings.
Issues with which the SRC have been involved included: organising the school disco, organising go green for fogo day, obtaining more laptops for the library. The SRC is also working on, creating a mural in the playground and Year 12 shirts.
In such a short time, our SRC are really making a difference around our school.
