Student Representative CouncilAdd to Favourites
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is formed each year in the Junior School with a peer-elected representative from each class in Years 1–5. The Year 6 representatives are the Junior School Community Captains, who are also peer-elected.
The representatives meet with the coordinating teacher each Monday during recess, to discuss suggestions raised by Junior School students and to action ideas. Minutes are taken during these meetings by the teacher, and are provided to the representatives. The Year 6 representatives meet with the Secondary School representatives once a fortnight during lunchtime, with minutes from these meetings posted on the SRC Portal page.
All representatives have the opportunity to be involved in the many aspects of the SRC and are actively supported by the coordinating teacher. As the student voice, the representatives discuss and action ideas, provide feedback to their classes and present information at Junior School Assemblies. They also represent the school at significant events.
The SRC fundraises throughout the year and the money raised is directed towards projects chosen by the students. In the past, this has included purchasing new equipment, organising social events, purchasing a school mascot, establishing Principal for the Day, supporting charities and promoting school spirit.
Each year the SRC organises and runs Spirit Week, which fosters collaborative play between Year Groups. It also works with and supports the Ravenswood Environmental Protection Agency (REPA).
