There was a great turn out for the first Student Council meeting of the year, with more than 40 student—from a really diverse range of backgrounds and learning areas—eager to work together to represent the student body and take on the many roles on offer.

Student Council Coordinator, Travis Matheson, gave a brief overview of the “endless opportunities that lay ahead for students this year” and a rundown of what next Tuesday’s Training Day will involve.

“It’s great to see such a true representation of our student cohort in the room today,” he said. “The world is your oyster when it comes to array of activities and leadership opportunities you can be involved with this year.”

Training Day kicks off at 9am on Tuesday, when the SC executive will be elected and councillors will take part in a range of planning and leadership activities.
