The Student Senate
The student voice is a valued part of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board. The SCDSB Student Senate works to amplify this voice and bring it to the boardroom. The Student Senate is comprised of two representatives from each of our four high schools. These representatives are elected by the student body and sit on their respective school’s student council. This council meets regularly throughout the school year at meetings chaired by the Student Trustee. These meetings allow students to discuss education issues, network with students from other schools within the SCDSB, and mobilize collective action.
