Student council is a group of students elected by peers to participate in designated areas of school government. Student Council represents students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels, though generally student councils are more prevalent at the high school level. Involvement at the lower levels has proven to be beneficial in that when students reach the higher grades, they have already experienced how meetings run and decisions are made.

Generally, councils participate in the planning of school events such as school dances and spirit rallies. They also assist administration with events for the local community. They work with school administration, parent organizations, student body, and local community to decide on and approve projects and initiatives for the school, students, and wider community, where possible.

Student council members bring ideas, requests, and feedback to the meetings and a democratic process is used to give students a voice and make decisions in creating a year-long calendar. Students who participate in student councils, under the supervision of Ms. Zhang and Mr. van Vuuren, learn about the democratic process, civic responsibility, leadership, problem solving, and teamwork.

In summary, the role of the Student Council is:

1. to build school spirit

2. to improve cooperation and collaboration between faculty, students, and/or the community

3. to encourage participation in preparation of school and community events

4. to demonstrate and show enthusiasm at all school events

5. to set a good example to others

6. to practice good citizenship by demonstrating honesty and kindness

7. to encourage school and community pride

8. to respect other people and their rights
