Students in years 8 -11 are each represented by four students, and two students are elected to represent the school’s Aboriginal students.
At the start of Term 3 four Year 7 students are elected to represent their year group.
The Council meets fortnightly, but weekly when the need arises.
The core business is to make the school the best it can be from a student’s perspective. To that end they take on projects, and run activities, that are designed to improve the physical and social aspects of the school.
They also carry out fund raising activities to support their World Vision child in Tanzania, as well as a number of other charities and causes.
On occasions they will also supply assistance at activities like the Senior Citizen’s Christmas lunch, Shire planning meetings and the like.
