Student Activity Council

Each high school in Peel selects a group of students to represent the interests of all students in the school. The election process, number of student council members, role of the members and president, and even the titles of those elected can vary from school to school.

Student activity councils help share students’ ideas, interests and concerns with both teachers and administrators. They play a very important role in each school.

Visit the Student Activity Council section of the Peel board website for more information.
