Southeastern’s Active Student Council

Southeastern’s Active Student Council

Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School offers a diverse range of clubs and activities that appeal to different students’ interests.  Southeastern’s Student Council is available for any students who have the aspiration to represent their student body.  Members are comprised of students from each grade and school staff.  Together, they attend Student Council meetings where students can freely express their concerns and opinions on the school’s activities.  A 10th-grade Council member, Zekar-Yah Henry (Brockton), gave his remarks about the Student Council stating, “I really like how the students have the opportunity to voice their opinions and make their presence known.”

Giving the student body a voice to openly speak their opinions of what is occurring within the school is important to many.  Principal Mrs. Leslie Weckesser commented in a recent Student Council meeting, “The School Council provides an opportunity to get all stakeholders together to discuss the needs of the students and how we can give the students a voice here in Southeastern.”  She goes on to say, “students were very comfortable to say the things that we need to do better.”

There is also an inclusion of parents in the Student Council.  This has given the school’s administration a more helpful perspective from the point-of-view of parents of children in the Southeastern community.

The Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical School District consists of a four-year public high school and a post-secondary technical institute. The high school offers 20 career majors to students from Brockton, East Bridgewater, Easton, Foxboro, Mansfield, Norton, Sharon, Stoughton, and West Bridgewater.
