The Student Representative Council (SRC) is the representative body on campus and exists to serve the students of Eastern College Australia by providing:
a/ accountability for the College to ensure the Code of Practice is upheld
b/ a channel for presenting non-grievance issues relevant to students to faculty
c/ representation on various college committees and boards including membership of the Academic Board, membership of the Green Group and attendance at Governance Board meetings by invitation
c/ student-led promotion of college values
The role of the SRC is to act as a bridge and voice between the student body and the staff as we both share a common goal - serving you and helping you experience Christ here at Eastern.
The council is made up of at least 4, but no more than 8 members who are nominated by students. Membership will be for a minimum of 1 year and maximum of 2 years; after a one year break they may be re-elected. Council members are committed to the core values of the college and have a proven academic record of study. They represent various academic streams.
How we work
The council meets regularly to discuss and action issues of student life. Under the leadership of the principal, council members have access to senior leadership as necessary to resolve issues. There are a minimum of two meetings each semester. Meetings of the SRC are open to the members of the student body and staff of the College. Non-SRC members may be asked to leave due to sensitive matters. A quorum represents two thirds of the members of the Council.
The council will be made up of a President and Secretary who each serve for one year. These officers will be elected by the council. The President; will lead the SRC and chair meetings, is a member of the Academic Board, and attends Governance Board meetings upon invitation of the board. The President will meet regularly with the Principal or their delegate.
What you can do
It is our desire that you experience the best college life possible and that opportunities are created for you to connect with people. If we are to speak on your behalf on issues that concern the student body, we need to know how your Eastern experience is going and how we can best serve you. We would love to hear from you.
