Student Leadership Program


Putting Student Choice and Voice into action!

Encouraging and facilitating student leadership is a priority area for the Sun West School Division and goes hand-in-hand with our Personalized electronically Blended Learning (PeBL) philosophy. Initiated by the Sun West Board of Education in 2007, the Sun West Student Leadership Program has grown to include four components and students in the program have also represented Sun West at provincial and national events.

Due to the requirements necessary to protect the health and safety of students, staff and the community, Sun West is operating the Student Leadership Program differently than it has in the past. Two of the traditional components, the Career Fair and Student Tutor Program are on pause this year but the activities planned or underway in the 2020-21 school year are described below.

2020-21 Student Leadership Program

At the beginning of the 2020-21 school year, Sun West invited applications from interested students to be part of the Student Leadership Program. Students who applied were selected to be members of one of two groups. There are Team Sun West whose primarily responsibility is to plan and deliver the annual Sun West Student Leadership Conference and The Youth Consultation Team whose main purpose is to gather student views on educational issues students consider most important and make recommendations to the Board of Education about these issues.

The Student Leadership Program members meet monthly via Microsoft Teams and also stay in touch via Teams.

Team Sun West is in the process of planning the first-ever virtual Sun West Leadership Conference, which is scheduled for April 23, 2021. More details on the conference will be announced soon. More information on the Youth Consultation Team will be available soon as well.

Every month Student Leadership members put together a collection of great ideas on how to keep school spirit going even during the pandemic with the various limitations on activities caused by COVID-19.Click here to see the February ideas.
