Student Leadership Council (SLC) works with the Board of Education to provide an outlet for students to get themselves, and their schools, involved in district-wide initiatives, have their voices heard and engage with like-minded individuals.
For the 2020-21 year, the theme of SLC will be Emotional Intelligence (EQ).
SLC was started in 1998 by students in our district under the leadership of Patricia Gartland who was then District Principal for Community Relations. Since then SLC has been an important part of School District 43. Past events have included the Believe Initiative, a District Student Leadership Conference, running a steering committee for feminine-hygiene products, a digital media awareness event, a bullying awareness event, a TEDx event, and multiple World Cafés. We have also given input on various current events within the district, such as School District budgets, or graduation requirements.
By facilitating the sharing the voices, opinions, and concerns of students, we are the pathway between the Board and students to achieve fair representation of student voice.
The School District 43 (Coquitlam) Student Leadership Council (SLC) is a group comprised of student representatives from Middle Schools and Secondary Schools across the district. General Meetings are held once a month, and Executive meetings are also held once a month. If you have any further questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, DM us on social media, or reach out to an Executive member or district representative.
