Student Senate 

What is a Student Senate?

The Student Senate is a committee designed to establish a student vision for the Halton Catholic District School Board. Its members, Student Senators, provide a link between the Student Trustees and the remainder of the students in the board. The Senate is composed of three to eight representatives from each secondary school.

Job Description

The primary role of the Student Senate is to bring a more diverse “Catholic student voice” to the school board. Senators act as an advisory body to the Student Trustees in order to provide a wider perspective on issues that face students in our Catholic schools. Student Senators also have the opportunity to “self determine” their roles. They may choose to develop initiatives that will promote and develop leadership throughout Halton. One example of this is the organization of the annual student conference.
