Student Representative Council
What is the S.R.C.?
The S.R.C. is a group of students elected by their peers to represent the wider student community. Each class from Years 3 – 6 elects two representatives to be a part of the S.R.C. each semester. This group of students, along with teacher coordinators, represents student voice within the school. Their role involves actively participating in the school and broader school community by putting forward students’ views, concerns and ideas. The group meets fortnightly and the SRC aims to make our school an even better place to learn.
What is the role of the SRC?
Our SRC provides all students with a voice. Their role involves actively participating in the school and broader school community by discussing issues that concern students, raise awareness of broader social issues and aim to improve not only our school as a place of learning but also the world in which they live.
Our S.R.C. regularly suggest improvements to our school buildings and grounds and conduct fundraising activities to support local, state and national causes of interest to them. Their achievements have included:
- Creation and planting of garden bed in the courtyard area outside the Library
- Supported our farmers in drought stricken areas of Australia by fundraising with hay bale initiative and promoting awareness with an accompanying ‘farm dress’ theme day
- Campaigned for additional sports equipment and organised games in the yard
- Sponsored a third world country child through World Vision
- Lent a ‘helping hand’ to Envision by collecting bottle tops to be made into prosthetics for disabled children
- Helped heal our injured and homeless native wildlife after the bushfires by asking for a gold coin donation and promoting awareness by holding a whole school animal dress up day
