Student Representative Council (SRC)

At Coburg West our SRC is made up of two representatives from each classroom who are voted into this position by their peers.The SRC meets regularly and is an opportunity for students to have a say, make suggestions and voice opinions on a range of issues that affect all students.


In 2013 we have worked on fundraising for our Friendship Tree which is a safe and welcoming place in our school yard where all students can go during recess and lunch breaks. We have also raised funds donated to Oxfam for students and schools in need of support in Cambodia and Vietnam. Our current project is a poster competition and an anti litter school yard campaign desgned to keep our school environment clean and safe for all.


The staff coordinating body for the SRC are Lorraine Edwards ( Assistant Principal) Patrizia Amerena ( Grade 5-6 Teacher) Laura Rizk ( Grade 1-2 Teacher) Nicole Dunn (Prep Teacher)
