SRC

STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL

Balmoral Community College has a very active Student Representative Council which is made up volunteers from across the school.  A teacher is given responsibility for overseeing its operation. The SRC meet fortnightly and discuss many issues of concern to the student body. The students maintain a sports locker stocked with equipment purchased through their fundraising efforts.
The SRC provides a means for students to have a significant role in the decision making in the school, particularly in matters which affect them directly. Examples of this are: concerns related to uniform, use of the computer room at lunch time and use of the canteen and hall area. They also take on a specific focus throughout each term and work on small projects in Action Teams to achieve goals that they create. Examples of these themes include: "Jazzing up the school grounds" and "Being active community members".
The SRC organises many different school events which can include: activities programs for the last day of each semester, school socials which usually run according to a theme, Melbourne Cup day, casual dress days and special lunches. Charity efforts are also supported with fundraisers such as Jeans for Genes day and Red Nose day featuring on the yearly calendar of events. They are also highly active within the local community throughout the year by: supplying drinks and running stalls at the Balmoral Show, supplying drinks at events like the Chameleon Arts Festival and Moonlight Cinema Nights and providing egg and bacon rolls at the Easter Market as well as fundraising for local needs.
