A Student Council is a representative structure for students, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and the students. Student councils can create a sense of ownership of the school and its activities among the student population.

The Student Council provides an opportunity for students to make their voice heard. The committed students also learn to develop their communication, planning and organisational skills which will be of benefit to them in their future lives. Moreover, the contribution made by a Student Council to the development of school policy in several areas can have significant benefits for students and the school.

The student council members are elected upon the beginning of the new school year and are elected to the council through personal or classmate nominations. A democratic election process is held through majority vote with successful representatives creating a student council team.
