Student Council

By definition, a student council, “ is a group of student leaders who work with an adult advisor to collaborate with others to impact their school community. The purpose of the student council is to give students an opportunity to develop leadership by organising and carrying out school activities and service projects.  In addition to planning events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare, the student council is the voice of the student body.  They help share student ideas, interests and concerns with the school-wide community.” The ARKIS student council was set up in 2013 with membership and involvement providing the student with skills such as confidence, humility, resilience, time management structure, authenticity and goal-orientated citizens who promote a strong sense of civic engagement.


Created influential leaders in the school and in the community of the future.
