What is Student Council?
main goal of our student council is to be a voice for the student body at AMVC
and most importantly to make this year unforgettable for the entire AMVC
community. As the student council body we are responsible for many events that
occur at the school such as fundraisers, dances, school spirit weeks, field
trips and many many more. Students who joined this year have already
demonstrated outstanding leadership skills and the ability to work with others.
We have greatly appreciated all of their hard work and effort so far this year.
We are always interested in new ideas that students have to offer as well as
members of the Parent Council. Please do not hesitate to share these ideas with
are a few stories of events we have already organized…
the course of December we held our annual collection for our Holiday Hampers.
Our goal was to have enough donations to provide at least 3 families with
enough goods for their holiday. We were overwhelmed to see the donation boxes
overflowing with items. We managed to reach our goal and prepare 3 Hampers for
3 families. We appreciate
all the effort and a
would like to send a big thank you to all that
donated and helped these families have a wonderful holiday season. Way to go AMVC!!
Anti Bullying Week (January 13-17)
A week filled with Anti Bullying
activities was planned by our Student Council. On Monday, January 13th we
started the week off with a hard hitting poem called "You changed me"
read by Anne
O . It sure got the student body thinking about the impact
bullying can have on all of our lives. Day 2 of our Anti Bullying Week was our
door decorating contest. Homeroom classes were provided with poster paper and
art supplies to jazz up their doors while also taking the time to raise
awareness about the negative effects of bullying. On Wednesday almost 80 % of
our student body took part in our AMVC Day of Pink by dressing in pink
clothing. On Thursday, January 16th
students took part in our Vow of Silence day which meant no talking, texting or
emailing for 24 hours. Sometimes speaking out means using no words at all. Finally on Friday we had a guest speaker from
the Winnipeg Police Department who gave students a presentation on
cyberbullying. It was amazing to see all of our peers participate in the
activities and raise awareness about a topic that hits close to home for many
students. A big thanks to everyone who helped us put this week together!!
