The high school student council has a significant role of representing student opinion in school matters. The president meets with the principal regularly to deal with student issues and attends the school’s board meetings with the right to voice an opinion. The council is also responsible for many social activities during the school year including the Christmas Ball, Ski Day and participation in the 17th May parade.
The student council election takes place every year in September. Meetings are held every second week.
“In the student council we did do quite a few things differently due to corona. The primary thing we did was to divide up into different sections of the HS student council such as one for events and one for bringing up day to day problems so that we wouldn’t have large meetings as often. we have also had to do most of our meetings online and often had to share information through teams rather than in person. As for events we have tried to reduce the amount of them that we do this year, but when we did do them, we had to take a lot of things into consideration before going through with them such as cohorts and social distancing.”
