Class SRC

Each class elects 2 representatives per term who attend the SRC meetings.

These representatives report on relevant issues and lea their own class in discussions which centre around playground issues, school rules, fundraising ideas and any other student interest topics. 

The decisions that are made are reported at the full SRC meeting held on alternate fortnights.

The SRC is  involved in fundraising especially for LACLA (Let African Children Learn Association) which is a project supporting the education of students in Zambia.

Community Engagement

Each year students are nominated by the school for the Community, Citizenship and Art Awards run by Wests Ashfield Leagues.

The awards were established to shine light on Inner-West schools and students playing a part in helping to make our local community a kinder and more caring place.
