Student Representative Council

Each year St Gregory's students (MacQuoid Street Campus Yrs 2-6) can be nominated to join the school SRC. School Leaders (teachers and students) visit classrooms to encourage responsibility and service for the school community. The Student Represenative Council allows our students to be given an authentic student voice; determining future direction for the community.

The SRC meet regularly. Usually some lunch time meetings are conducted and further meetings can be held during class time. The overall emphasis is on participating in improving the school's culture by being part of a student council where children raise the issues that are concerning them. These ideas are then communicated to the staff and school leadership teams in order to best meet the needs of our student community.

The SRC values the involvement of all students, however, some students are specifically selected due to their burgeoning skillset and their generally positive influence upon others.

There is no set minimum or maximum number of students, but at least one representative from each class is required to create an authentic Student Representative Council from a cross section of the student community.

Some students are selected to attend an excursion to New Parliament House to visit the Parliamentary Education Centre to conduct a Mock Parliament. We also visit the Australian Electoral Education Centre to learn about democracy and the privilege of the voting process.
