Student Councils

The students' mouthpiece

Primary Student Council
Students from Grade 3 to Grade 5 at the Dahlem campus are offered the opportunity to participate in self-government, decision-making and project planning through the Primary Student Council. The Primary Student Council meets once every week during lunchtimes to discuss issues, concerns and requests from the student body, then they relay this information to the respective Principal for action. They also coordinate spirit day events with the Secondary Student Council and class or club fundraising activities. In addition, they recommend revisions and additions to school policies. Student Council representatives are elected by students from their homeroom each year. Primary Student Council is chaired and facilitated by two Primary staff members.
