LEADERSHIP – STUDENT GOVERNMENT 10-12
Student Government at Byrne Creek runs as a class or a club, depending on your own involvement. It runs afterschool during Y block from 3:20pm to 4:45pm. The club meets on Mondays, while the class meets with the club on Mondays and separately on Thursdays. The difference between the club and the class is that if taken as a class Student Government will be a course in your timetable, 4 credits will be awarded and a mark in your report card will be assigned. Meanwhile the club counts towards service hours and may be the right option for those of you who have a very full schedule. On club meetings (Mondays) our own executive chairs and prepares agendas for the meeting; while on Thursdays students participate in lessons on leadership.

Class meetings are held once a week before school. All other course hours will vary dependent upon which games/events the student is assigned to work.
