SIDMOUTH: New set up for student council
Thursday, 17 October 2013
SIDMOUTH College’s new student council members have been elected and are full of ideas.
Supported by teachers Mrs Jenkins and Miss Hindmarsh, and having researched and observed how successful student councils operate in other schools, this year’s council members have decided to adopt a new approach in their representation of students at the college.
The first part of this process got underway recently with the allocation of specific roles to each member.
Student council publicity officer, Alastair Papworth, explained: “At our student council meeting we allocated a specific job to each member of the council.
The new chairperson for the council is Lyris Richards, a previous school council member. As an ‘old’ member, we felt Lyris had the experience needed for being the new chairperson for 2013.
Alongside Lyris is the vice-chairperson, and this role has been taken on by Katrina Horth. The secretaries for the council are Zoe Smith and Harriet Slater and their job will be to take notes in council meetings, inform student representatives of any changes to meetings times or locations, and ensure the conference room is always left tidy after meetings.
“Adam Loker and Sophie Latheron have been appointed as treasurers and will manage our budget and suggest fundraising ideas and events.
“Finally, we appointed a number of publicity officers who have a variety of roles. Chloe Towers, Olly Moore-Jones and Mary-Jayne Babington will be responsible for the creation of posters and flyers.
“Harriet Slater will be responsible for the student council notice board which will publicise our news and events to the rest of the school. Finally, myself and Ellie Hattrell have taken on responsibility for communications in the media and the college newsletter.
“We hope that our new set up will help make Sidmouth College student council more efficient and productive and that we will be better able to assist and advise Mr Duncan on students’ suggested improvements for the college.”
