North Park Secondary School’s Student Activity Council is comprised of an elected body, selected ministers, and a general assembly. While the council itself is as diverse as they come, all members have one characteristic in common: The sense of dedication needed to make the school a better place. Acting as the backbone of the school, SAC provides start-up capital for new clubs and efforts throughout the school, while constantly working toward promoting unity within the school by holding events such as the annual winter semi-formal, in which students are given a chance to interact with their peers in a safe setting, outside the classroom. The work of North Park’s SAC is extensive, in that they must also be wary of the school’s infrastructural needs. In the past year, the SAC has introduced a series of screens throughout the school which work to promote school activities by presenting the daily announcements in visual form. Likewise, upon request from the male population, the SAC recently installed mirrors in the boy’s washrooms. While many students view SAC members as the “bosses” of the school, it would be more accurate to say that SAC members are leaders who envision, inspire, listen—all while living and breathing North Park.
