Student Representative Council (SRC)
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is an opportunity for students to experience leadership at school, and to actively participate in decision making, planning and program implementation within the school. The students in years 2 to 6 present a speech to their class and are elected by their peers based on merit and responsibility for a twelve-month term of office.
The main role of Student Representative Council represents and supports Social Services (fundraising), Sustainability and ensuring our school values are highlighted and followed. There is a staff member that chairs the meeting and takes the minutes when items are raised by the children of the various classes, as well as performing a range of fundraising and awareness activities for charity. The SRC also plays an important role at the whole school assemblies.
Some of the wonderful initiatives that the Student Representative Council will be undertaking include:
- Learning about and conducting fundraising activities for health issues that affect the lives of children around the world
- Developing strategies for minimising paper waste to create a more sustainable school community
- Promoting and monitoring the responsible disposal of rubbish within the school community
- Encouraging healthy and sustainable living through a number of events such as Walk to School Day and Clean Up Australia Day
- Implementing a range of initiatives to celebrate and strengthen our school Values of Responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Belonging and Empathy, including involvement in International and National celebrations such as Harmony Day
- Discussing issues raised by peers
- Presenting at assemblies, classroom visits and writing newsletter items to inform the school community of current initiatives
