Leumeah High Schools Student Representative Council is student-led group that represents the student body of Leumeah High School. The purpose of the Council is to give the student body a fuller understanding of democratic government, give the student body a platform to voice their concerns and recommendations and developed leadership skills within the elected students. To achieve this aim, it is proposed that the Council shall endeavour to:
- Provide training for students to articulate their opinions;
- Provide a training ground for leadership skills;
- Provide an organising body for most student activities;
- Help solve problems concerning students that arise in the school;
- Encourage an excellent school spirit;
- Promote an interest by students in community affairs.
Each year group elects a specified number of students to represent them on the Student Representative Council. The SRC is comprised of 4 students from Years 7, 8 and 9, 6 students from Years 10 and 11, and a leadership body from Year 12 containing 12 students.
Elections for the Year 12 leadership body take place in Term 3. To join the Year 12 leadership body students fill out a nomination form, ask a teacher to endorse their nomination form and have that seconded by a member of the school executive. Election for other students of the school who wish to join the SRC will occur at the beginning of Term 4. After nominations, an election is held within a week and the students vote for the person that best represents their year group.
