Student Representative Council
The Student Representative Council (SRC) is made up of the school Captains and Vice-Captains (who are the executive), Prefects, House Captains and elected form captains from each form class. Their primary role is to support student initiatives that reflect the needs of the students and the school.
The SRC raises funds through four free dress days each year. These free dress days coincide with social and cultural events that the student body deems as important. The first is Valentine's Day where students can send messages to their special friends attached to a rose or red heart balloon. The second is environmental and is linked to National Tree Planting Day. The third is 'State of Origin' and it encompasses a Touch match between the grade 11s (blues) and the grade 12s (maroons). The final free dress day is Melbourne Cup day.
Money raised from these events goes towards supporting the SRC's sponsored child, paying for some of the wages for a second groundsman, supporting students who attend sporting and cultural events at the state, national and international level and any student initiative that is school related that the SRC deems worthy.
The SRC also supports through student collectors and volunteers, the Red Shield Appeal, Guide Dogs for the Blind and The Red Cross.
The SRC have also held special free dress days to fund raise for cyclone and Tsunami relief as well as other catastrophic events around Australia and the world.
Kenmore's SRC gives an opportunity for all students to have their say through two tiers of structure. The first structure is the more formal meeting where all representatives meet, put forward motions to the meeting, discuss them and vote on them. The second tier is the open forum where any student can place an issue on the agenda and have a rational discussion and debate about the issue. This process ensures that students' voices are heard and their opinions valued.
