  2. The SRC Coordinator will be a member of staff and be elected by the Principal in subsequent years.


The SRC’s term of office will extend from July to the following July.


Elections for SRC members will occur in July and carried out in the order below.


  • Elections for the School Captains and Vice Captains will be selected through an election campaign.  The applicants must submit an expression of interest to the SRC coordinator explaining why they should be elected for the relevant position.  The top 20 expressions of interest (as selected by teaching staff) will be identified and notified of their authorisation to run in the campaign.  The student (once identified by the SRC coordinator) will then be required to create a campaign poster to be displayed in the undercover area and give a short speech to the school.  A secret school ballot will then be conducted to elect the positions.
  • Class representatives and members are elected from UP and Secondary classes.  Each student wishing to put their name forward as a Council member must give their name to the SRC Coordinator by the end of June.  Those students already running for Captaincy can assume their name has already been put forward.  Students will be elected through a secret ballot conducted in each class.
