Student Council

The Student Council is a group of students who act as the official voice of the the student body.

The Council discusses and decides on issues that matter to the students and are important to the whole Academy, giving students the chance to make a real difference to the smooth running of Harris City Academy Crystal Palace. It encourages students to be  active citizens by building self-confidence, learning how to treat others, making decisions and developing leadership responsibility on behalf of the student cohort. 

The student council is spilt into two sections: Faculty Cabinets and whole academy Student Council.


Faculty Cabinets

Each faculty has a Faculty Cabinet that is elected every year. Each year is represented by two members from the tutor groups which make up the year group within that faculty. The Faculty Cabinet meets bi-weekly and the meetings are overseen by the faculty coordinator and are chaired by the faculty president.

The election process for the faculty president entails candidates being nominated first as a cabinet member and then nominated via the cabinet to stand for the presidency. The candidates for the presidency then deliver a speech to the whole faculty within assembly, who then vote. The winner is elected as the president on a year’s term and the runner up is automatically elected the vice-president.

The other roles within the cabinet are outlined below and each role has specific responsibilities, as well as being an active member of their faculty cabinet.

Below is a list of each faculty cabinet:Cabinet


Student Council

The faculty cabinets feed into the overall whole academy student council. This meets every three weeks and is chaired by the head students and overseen by Mr Marillat (Senior Assistant Principal). The Student Council is made up of the head students, their deputies and the faculty presidents and vice-presidents. The student council present their progress to the Academy Leadership Team each term.


Prefects

The Academy offers Year 11 students the chance to take on added responsibility as prefects. Being a prefect is seen as a prestigious role within the Academy and students take part in a highly competitive application process in order to be selected as one of the prefects from their faculty.

Students complete an application form, seek references, and take part in small group assessment tasks and finally an interview. The prefects then represent the student body on duty during break and lunch time, role modelling behaviour and helping set the culture, as well as assisting during parent’s evenings, open evenings and other external events.
