Introducing the 2016-2017 Student Council Executive

Last Updated: Monday, 24 October 2016 Published: Friday, 21 October 2016 Written by Stephanie Alexander

A government is a body tasked with the imposing but noble responsibility of guarding and improving the well-being of those it leads. In the quasi-democratic realm of high school it is essential to introduce students both to their civic duty to elect qualified leaders and to the principles of ‘good governance’. Fluid as the term may be, ‘good governance’ is generally characterised by traits such as transparency, responsiveness, equity and accountability.

To lead the student body in this daunting endeavour are the 2016-2017 Head Girl, Elleen Commodore, and Deputy Head Girl, Dinelle Dailey. Both young ladies are enthusiastic leaders and participants in the school community who have shown themselves to be exemplary role models. Together, these two young ladies hope to reinvigorate the Student Council and leave a positive mark on the Convent High School.

All leaders need the support and perspective of a team. Consequently, at the first Student Council meeting held on Monday 10th October, 2016, four executive members were elected: Zoryda Lewis as Recording Secretary, Jaeda Henry as Corresponding Secretary, Schellie Stephen as Treasurer and D’Jana Wyllis as Historian. Together, the Student Council executive members hope to, as Ms Commodore put it, “incorporate fun into our hectic pursuit of academic excellence and create a more vibrant and active student council.”

May the odds be ever in their favor.
