St George Girls High School
An Academically Selective High School For Girls
Opportunities exist for students to develop their leadership potential through the prefect system in Year 12 and the Student Representative Council which has representatives from Year 7 to Year 11. Students in Year 11 serve on the SRC executive.
Students from each year elect representatives to the Student Representative Council. The role of the Council is to meet and discuss matters that affect the school community. Where important matters arise, the council votes and recommendations are made to the School Principal.
The SRC is a good way of communicating students' views and ideas as well as providing valuable experience in decision making. The SRC also supports a wide range of charities including the Leukaemia Foundation, the Children’s Medical Research Institute, UNICEF, the Children’s Hospital and the Cancer Council. The SRC also subsidises students engaging in high level sporting activities.
As well as assisting charities money raised from school fundraising activities is used for improvements within the school to create a friendly and beneficial environment. Recent SRC projects include planting of trees for shade, the installation of air conditioning in the school library and purchasing useful teaching resources in the school.
