Learning more about our SRC
The following information has been written by two of our SRC leaders. Darci and Scarlett have the important role that includes running meetings and taking the minutes, which are provided to every class. They also attend special meetings with the Deputy Principal to plan and discuss outcomes of their work.
SRC stands for Student Representative Council. SRC includes two students from each class to share their class’ opinions and ideas towards our school and community. We hold a meeting every two weeks for updates and reports.
To be in SRC, it is required for your classmates to vote for you to be your class representative, although in Junior Primary you elect your classmate with guidance from your teacher. The upper primary students present a speech and then their classmates vote.
At the moment we are working towards fundraising to support community projects and for our school. At SRC we support our community with different opportunities and events. We treat everyone with respect.
Between the fortnightly meetings, we have our own class meetings where we report back to our class with the information from the previous SRC meeting. We always take into consideration everyone’s ideas and opinions. If there was an issue in the school, we will bring it up in the next SRC meeting.
SRC has a lot of input at Seacliff Primary, in which we work towards fundraisers and projects for our school. For instance, we fundraised for a new playground in the junior primary area and each year we hold a fun run to support our school and buy new equipment for our education, such as ipads, laptops and even sports equipment for P.E. We’ve also provided input into things like the school dress code.
In conclusion, at Seacliff Primary SRC plays a big role to help our community and school to be a better place. The SRC also enjoys helping others and encouraging them to do their best and aim high.
