Students' Council

School Song:

The road unwinds before us
And we must venture on
Towards the bright tomorrow
Which faith and hope enthrone.

We shall not stay nor linger
We shall not shrink nor fail
But hand in hand together
Strike out along the trail.

Chorus:
Head, heart and hand we offer
That none will fail the test
"Plus Ultra" leads us further
Until we are the best.

And on our backs the armour
Forged in our college days
And in our eyes the light of truth
This college sets ablaze.

Chorus

The Students' Council is one of the co-curricular activities in the college. Councillors are selected through a long process. They will first start out as a Council applicant after submitting their application form and will then begin a campaign school to garner more votes during the election. After they are elected, the Council elects will go through an interview in which their post will be chosen by the teachers and will go through a Council elects training camp.
