Your Student Council is a group of student representatives from each year group that comes together to discuss student issues, plan events and fix problems.
Council meets once a week to bring up ideas students have and keep on top of issues in the community.
Everyone on the council is a friendly face to new students. If you’re ever lost, look for someone with a badge and we will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Being a part of the Student Council is one of the most rewarding experiences at John Curtin, giving students the opportunity to have a real say in what is going on.
If you’d like to be a part of the Student Council next year, elections for Year 7 students will be during Term 1. Elections for Year 8 to 12 students take place towards the end of the year so that we have a stable council from the beginning of the next year.
The Student Council is one of the main leadership opportunities within our school. It helps develop your confidence, teaching you to just go for it!
By the end of your council experience you’ll have become a much better public speaker. It teaches you how to become a better leader, giving you skills that will help you in your adult life.
Your Student Council representative is the voice of the students in the school, especially when those students do not feel they have a voice.
If you ever have an idea, bring it to any student council representative and we will ensure that your idea is carefully considered.
“The student council has opened so many new experiences for me. I have been able to collaborate with staff members, some of whom I would never have met, while also gaining new connections with peers from all year groups. The council has given me the opportunity to make positive change within the school community and has allowed me to learn how to be an effective communicator and leader, which are invaluable skills for the future.”
