The student council at St. Patrick’s Cathedral Grammar School consists of fourteen students, from 1st to 6th year. Student council elections are held at the beginning of each year. Students are nominated by their peers and are voted for by secret ballot. Meetings are held once every three weeks during lunch. There are times, apart from meetings, when representatives may need to be excused from class. Members of the Student Council wear badges to identify themselves.
The Student Council meets to discuss student issues which are brought to their attention from class representatives, teachers or management. Meetings take place between the Student Council and other members of the school community to address concerns among the student body and improve school life. They are consulted on policy changes or reviews and provide the students with a voice on these matters. For this academic year, the chairperson is Emma Nicholson and the secretary is Thomas West as elected by the members of the Student Council at their first meeting.
