The Student Council is an elected body made up of an executive and representatives from every home form. The executive branch has 9 officers: President, Senior Vice-President, Junior Vice-President, Girls' Athletic Association Representative, Boys' Athletic Association Representative, Social Convenor, Secretary, Treasurer, and the Music Council President. The election of the executive members for the Student Council took place last spring. The election of the form representatives will take place in late September. At that time, each home form will elect two representatives to be members of the Council.
The executive and the home form representatives meet regularly to promote, coordinate, and support extracurricular activities in the school. Moreover, the Council provides the money to allow these activities - sports events, clubs, dances - to operate. Most of this money is obtained from the students in the form of an activity fee. To insure that all students are well informed as to how this money is used, the home form representatives report on the proceedings of these meetings during the homeroom period following a Council meeting.
The Student Council, however, has a much broader role to play in the school. These broader aims are: to foster school spirit; to formalize student opinion about legitimate school interests and to present that opinion to the staff, principal, and parents in a responsible manner; to promote, through participation in Council, practical knowledge of our democratic institutions; and to advance, in all ways, the best interests of the school. To understand fully the operation of the Student Council, all students should be familiar with the Student Council Constitution. Copies are available in the library.
