Mission Statement

“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.
