Aanii! It’s Aurora again and I’m back again for my third week, I really do enjoy writing these articles and I really hope you all enjoy reading them. How are you all? If only I could hear all of your replies, that’d be great. This week I will be writing about our Student Council at school.
Student Council is very important to our school. Student Council builds up our school spirit. Student Council gives the students fun activities to do once in a while. Right now Student Council plans weekly lunchtime sports. Student Council builds friendships and also teaches the students leadership skills.
The student council course is classified as an interdisciplinary course, students can earn credits for taking the course. Student Council consists of these students; Eugenia E, Kaitlynn R, Greg T, Nimkii, Evangelista N, Dustin, Sam G, Alexandria S, Amber L, Brandon P, Dakota W, Mark Jr R, Alec A, Chris A and Kyle B. The teacher that helps Student Council out is Ms. Maureen Peltier. Student council is in two courses. In the first semester, it’s IDC30 and in the second semester, it’s IDC40. Student Council holds a few fundraisers, such as the Spring Makeover that will be taking place in May…stay tuned for more details! Student Council attends Ontario Student Leadership Conference (OLSC). Wikwemikong High School has been attending OLSC since 2008.
One of the upcoming Student Council events is Semi-Formal. So listen up all you Wikwemikong High School students who are reading! The Semi-Formal will be taking place on April 17 and the theme will be ‘Night Under The Stars.’ The dance will be for high school students only! Student council is working very hard for this event; they are even considering having fireworks after the dance! Student council is allowing students from MSS to attend as long as they have their student ID and are friends with someone from WAHS. Student council is selling tickets in advance, five dollars for one person, eight dollars for a couple. Tickets at the door will be seven dollars. The dance will start at 8 pm and finish around midnight. Another heads up to students is to show up early because after a while the doors will lock for safety reasons! There will also be a photo booth set up for students! It is guaranteed to be a lot of fun!
I hope you all enjoyed my article this week! See you readers next week! Miigwech!
