What is SRC?
When students are given the opportunity to actively participate in their education, they are happier and feel that teachers, other students and the wider school community value their opinions. The establishment of a Student Representative Council (SRC) enables this vision to be realised within the school.
An SRC is defined as “…a group of students elected by their fellow students [who] represent all students…and organise ways for students to participate and contribute to their school community” (NSW Department of Education and Communities).
At St Joseph’s, the SRC is a group of students elected by their peers to represent the best interests of the student body and be their voice to make St. Joseph’s a better school.
Our SRC aims to liaise with the school community to collect relevant information, make decisions and implement action in order to improve all aspects of the community that is St Joseph’s Catholic High School. It consists of 36 members.
Students in the SRC at St Joseph’s:
Act justly…to ensure that students are given a voice
Love tenderly…to be inclusive of all students
Walk humbly with our God…to be active members of our Catholic school community
