The Student Council acts as a representative for the 800 plus students at Boyne Community School. Its purpose is to collaborate with teachers and administrators to improve student life and provide students with valuable learning experiences. The Student Council gives students a voice in determining school issues and ideas for solutions. The Student Council strives to unite the student body, get students involved, and to foster a positive climate throughout the school.
The goal of Student Council is to promote a sense of community within the school, act as a voice for students with the administration, provide community service, and raise funds for charitable causes and school improvements. The Student Council gives students a chance to make decisions regarding their school.
