Student Trustees are elected two-year term positions, with representatives rotating among the three high schools of the Board. They are active members of the Board,  participating in Board meetings and acting as Co-Chairs of the Student Senate. The duties of the Student Trustees include:

  • Consulting with and keeping the Student Senate informed about issues of interest and concern to students
  • Representing the views of the Student Senate at Board discussions
At the March 5, 2024, Board meeting, Trustees made the decision to add a third student trustee to represent the interests of Indigenous students within the Rainy River District School Board.  This position will enter the school rotation effective the 2024-2025 school year, with the initial incumbent being drawn from Rainy River High School.

Applications are now being accepted for the following:

The deadline for applications is April 22, 2024.  Interested students must be entering Grade 11 in the 2024-2025 school year.  You can download the Student Trustee application form or the Indigenous Student Trustee application form or pick up a paper copy in your school office.

Student Senate

The Student Senate meets monthly and acts as an advisory committee to the Director of Education, giving voice to student issues and priorities on behalf of all Rainy River District School Board students. The Student Senate consists of representatives from each secondary school as well as Sturgeon Creek Alternative Program. To qualify for the position of student senate, a student must be registered full time at a Board secondary school and be between 14 and 21 years of age during the entire school term. Each secondary school has a process for selecting its Student Senate representative.

Student Leadership Councils

Each secondary school has a Student Leadership Council which brings together student representatives from across the school to enrich the school experience for all students within that school.


Other Student Leadership Opportunities

Student leadership is seen in other forms throughout the system, through school Gay-straight alliances, clubs, extra-curriculars, and annual system events such as the Young Women's Conference and the Challenge.
