The Crestwood High School student representative council (SRC) is a peer-elected group which represents the student body. Key issues concerning students' welfare and concerns are debated and then put into motion if required.
The SRC aims to:
- take action to improve the quality of school life for all students through student leadership programs
- promote public education and its values
- foster future leaders through the program
- allow the students to have a voice in the way the school functions through their SRC
- act on the goals set by the SRC governing body
- and represent the school at the national SRC meetings.
SRC skill development opportunities include:
- chairing meetings
- public speaking.
Elected members discuss issues raised by the student body with the school's executive team and represent students on important school committees.
Students also organise fundraising activities for charity based on the interests of students at Crestwood High School. This important task has helped many groups and individuals and raises awareness of the importance of community support for others in need. The SRC is elected in Term 3 for the duration of one year.
- 5 members elected from Years 7 and 8
- 6 members elected from Years 9, 10 and 11
- 12 representatives including in that number the school captains vice captains and house captains.
