Student Council

The Student Council consists of two elected student representatives from each year level across Years 5-13. Our role is to represent all Discovery College students in terms of wellbeing. We meet regularly to discuss a range of topics that relate to student needs and school improvement. The Student Council has been instrumental in establishing, amongst other things, the Student-run CCAs and Cultural Stories. We are also responsible for allocating an annual PTA grant for student-led initiatives, and we coordinate the Cafeteria Advisory Group.

I am delighted that I have been voted to be part of the Student Council to represent Year 5. I was born in Australia and moved to Hong Kong when I was very young with my parents, who are Sri Lankan. I like playing all sorts of sports although soccer and golf are my favourites. I also enjoy chess and playing drums in my spare time.

I hope to stimulate some of the necessary changes that may be needed to improve the school environment for both myself and a wide range of peers across different year levels, and would definitely be interested in using this position to further myself as a leader, a peer, and someone involved in decision-making processes.

I am very honoured to be part of Student Council for 2016-17. I’m from Brazil and I love dancing and spending time with my family. I came to Discovery College last year and since then my love for the school has only increased. The thing I like the most about DC is the sense of community …the way the school welcomed me and the support I received from my peers, staff and teachers made me feel at home, so I want nothing but to return all the love this school has given to me. I’m very excited for this coming and last year at DC. I’ll do my best, along with Student Council, to make other students feel at home too, because that is an amazing feeling. Let’s grow, discover and dream.

My seventh and final year in Discovery College will prove to be bittersweet. I am very grateful to be able to serve for a third term, and nothing drives me more than the opportunity of working with my peers from a range of year levels through the Student Council. I look forward to the further efforts of improving school life through collaboration with my fellow representatives, tackling everything from student wellbeing to learning. To parallel school, I love to find new bands to listen to while unwinding with a cup of tea
