Student Trustees/Senators

We, the Avon Maitland District School Board Student Senators, are determined to: 

  • Develop unity amongst the secondary schools with the Avon Maitland District School Board;
  • Work towards fostering an educational system within the Avon Maitland District School Board, which is world-class in its support for students;
  • Ensure that Students’ Councils receive support, orientation and advocacy that they may need to be successful;
  • Carry with pride the fact that we are students representing students; offering relevant, responsible and timely representation;
  • Make the Avon Maitland District School Board aware of the needs, concerns and aspirations of all students; and
  • Empower and advocate for all students of the Avon Maitland District School Board.
 
As student senators, we consistently solicit students' voices to promote initiatives that will provide equity in the decision-making processes for our schools. We are committed volunteers who are committed to our fellow students and education, giving shape and hope to our future.  
 
Student trustees serve an important role for the Avon Maitland District School Board as well. They represent the voices of all students in decisions about education in Avon Maitland, and they help keep students informed about important decisions that affect them.  Furthermore, the student trustees participate in provincial-wide professional development through a network of all 76 public school boards at the Ontario Student Trustee Association.
 
If you are looking for more information and/or require assistance, please contact your student senator below. Elementary students who do not attend the schools listed below should contact the senator who represents the school that they will attend in the future.
