Deemed one of the most active schools in the board, Myer’s Student Council plays an integral part in the lives of numerous students. The council plans and supports a broad range of activities for students throughout the year and financially supports school clubs, activities and athletics. In addition, the council organizes buyouts and food drives to help support local community agencies. Often, a portion of the proceeds from school dances and other fundraisers is donated to local charities.
The council consists of an executive and elected representative from each grade level in the school. Grade 9 representatives are elected in October after they have settled into school routines and are familiar with council and its functions. Historically, council has enjoyed the full support of students at dances and other functions. For more info, click here!
