Student Council

Limestone Learning Foundation

Student Councils play a vital role in providing a student voice within our schools. Students are able to share their ideas on issues within our schools as well as provide leadership to initiatives that help make our schools safer, education focused and fun. Each Student Council has staff advisors who help support council members.

Each Limestone secondary school has a Student Council which is comprised of appointed and elected representatives of the student body. Students fill the position of co-presidents, treasurer, activity coordinators, grade representatives and many more as a part of the student governing body. If you would like to become involved in your school's secondary Student Council, please contact a guidance counsellor who can direct you to the staff advisor and/or members of the current Student Council for more information.

Some elementary schools also have leadership opportunities for students. Interested students should contact the principal or vice principal.

InterSchool Council

The Limestone District School Board InterSchool Council is comprised of representatives of all secondary school student councils within the district. Each month, Student Council Presidents from each school meet to share best practices, fundraising ideas, as well as work toward a large-scale joint event.

The InterSchool Council provides additional student voice to our school board. Students at individual schools have the opportunity to bring forward suggestions at the Board level via two elected Student Trustees who participate in monthly Board meetings alongside the elected Board Trustees. One rural and one urban Student Trustee oversee the Interschool Council meetings. Student Trustees are permitted to vote at Board meeting, however, their votes are non-binding.

The Interschool Council also organizes district-wide events and various fundraising initiatives.

Student Trustees

The position of Student Trustee is open to all senior students of the Limestone District School Board who meet the eligibility criteria listed on the Student Trustee Application Form. This policy extends the candidacy to not only the highest two ranking officials of the respective school’s Student Council, but to any senior student in Grade 10 or 11, and returning Grade 12 students.

Candidates must meet the eligibility criteria for the next academic year, and submit a completed application prior to the election. Candidates must prepare a speech not exceeding two minutes to present to the incoming and outgoing members of the council. The elections are generally held in May for the following school year.


The Limestone District School Board is situated on traditional territories of the Anishinaabe & Haudenosaunee.
