Members of the Student Representative Council are elected by their Year groups. Formal voting takes place early in the school year, after nominees have addressed Year Assemblies. The voting is done online using a Zoomerang survey tool.
The Student Representative Council is formed as follows:
• 10 members are chosen from Year 10
• 8 members are chosen from Year 9
• 6 members are chosen from each of Years 7 and 8
• 2 members are chosen from International , EALD or multicultural students
• 2 members are chosen from Indigenous Students
• 2 members are chosen from Special Education Students
From these students, a Year 9 and a Year 10 student are chosen to act as Student Representatives on the School Board. The Student Representative Council elects an Executive of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer.
The functions of the Student Representative Council are varied and include:
• representing the school on behalf of the student community
• providing leadership by exploring current issues and interests within the student body
• organising and leading student action initiatives across the school and within the network
• organising student involvement in school charity work
• organising school socials
• representing student views to staff, Principal and School Board
• assisting in running school assemblies
• providing exemplary behaviour and leadership for the student body.
The Student Representative Council promotes activities such as socials, school beautification and fund raising. The largest single event for the Student Representative Council is the organisation of RESPECT for Community Day. This event involves students addressing school assemblies, planning stalls, and liaising with businesses. The proceeds from this community event are split between funding school improvement initiatives and giving to various local charities.
The Student Representative Council has a substantial budget each year from the money raised at school socials. In recent years some of the money has been spent on various improvements around the school, including assembly digital equipment, school beautification initiatives, including artworks and painting, environmental improvements like water tanks and garden beds, and sponsoring of students who have been selected to represent the ACT in interstate competitions. The SRC also sponsors children in developing countries
