SRC Student Representative Council
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is made up of a group of student leaders who want to help other students by presenting ideas which are of benefit to all students, the College, Executive and the Advisory Board.
SRC Members are chosen by the students with two representatives from each year level in the Middle School and the House and Vice House Captains. The SRC also informs its peers of any important information which affects the student body.
Another purpose of the SRC is to teach students how the school works, how decisions are made and how to achieve changes. Being on the SRC teaches skills which can be put to use in later life. In the past, representatives have been very active and achieved important negotiations with the Principal and Assistant Principal.
Students participating in the SRC need to be well organised and prepared to work towards having input in the running of the school.
All students are invited and encouraged to join the SRC. We believe they have a valuable contribution to make by voicing new ideas and in ensuring that their expectations of secondary school are fulfilled.
Issues likely to be discussed at SRC meetings:
- Problems or concerns that students have and which need to be discussed by the Advisory Board, for example mobile phone policies
- Letters and requests from various organisations.
- Any fundraising that is seen as important to the school.
- Organising and running end of year activities such as O’Loughlin Day.
Any student who is interested in joining the SRC must attend meetings and sign an agreement that they will abide by the rules set down.
SRC involvement can be very rewarding, particularly if students present good ideas at the meetings and are then able to follow them through to fruition.
