“As Halton Catholic District School Board Student Trustees, we are committed to promoting awareness of issues affecting our students and our ability to enhance the importance of student voice."
What is a Student Trustee?
- Student Trustees are senior (Grade 11 and 12) high school students that have been elected by the Student Senate to represent all of the students in a Board.
- Every school board in Ontario has at least one Student Trustee. Our board has three; one to represent Burlington, another for Oakville, and yet another to represent North Halton.
What do they do?
- Student Trustees attend all regular Board Meetings and sit at the Board Table.
- Although they have a non-binding vote, Student Trustees are allowed to voice their opinions on important issues.
- Student Trustees are the essential connection between students and Trustees, Senior Administration, and stakeholders of the Board.
- Student Trustees run the Student Senate.
