Read below, some comments from Student Councillors about the roles and activities.
Hello, my name is Kai and I am the President of the student council this year. I am excited to take on a higher level of responsibility, such as embodying more of a leadership role and acting as a guide for fellow council members. Also, I look forward to seeing where this new experience takes me. I chose to apply for this position to gain key employability skills, such as communication, teamwork and thinking skills and to challenge myself with something I was not yet familiar with. As well as this, I have important ideas that I would like to implement during my term as President which include student feedback sessions and prioritising mental health more. This year, the student council’s primary foci are to improve sustainability around the school in order to take that extra step in becoming more eco-friendly and reducing our carbon footprint and also student experience. This includes enhancing students’ day-to-day school life, whether that be their well-being, education or facilities. Please feel free to speak to me whenever you have an idea you would like us to potentially make happen.
Kai N, President
My name is Michael, and I am the Treasurer of the Student Council. After settling in over the last few years, I saw the opportunity to implement my voice and have a positive input inside the school through joining the Student Council. Honestly, it wasn’t easy to get in. I was faced with quality competition from my form but, in the end, I got there! During the first meeting, we were informed of the leading roles in the Student Council. I saw this as a fantastic opportunity to have a greater impact and to achieve my goal. As Treasurer, my job is to manage the student council budget and utilise it in the most beneficial way. Overall, the Student Council members are kind and keen to hear your ideas. I am looking forward to collaborating with my peers and yourselves alike to improve the school community. I hope I have encouraged you to become a Student Councillor in the upcoming years.
Michael E, Treasurer
Hi I’m Jack and I’m this year's Public Relations Director for the School Council. I chose to become a part of the School Council because I really want to help the school for the better and make changes that will benefit students. I chose the role in Public Relations because I feel I have a good understanding of students' wants and needs and I can effectively raise awareness about the actions taken by the Student Council. I can’t wait to help the student body for the better.
Jack R, Public Relations Director
