The Student Council represents and acts for the student community of Secondary School No. 9 in Bydgoszcz. The main responsibilities of the Council include informing the school’s authorities about students’ concerns, organizing annual election for the Student Council, conducting official ceremonies at the beginning of each school year, drawing monthly lucky numbers, caring for the good name of the school and looking after the school banner. The Council also represents the school at important public ceremonies and events, both at school and outside. What is more, the Council tries to make students’ stay at school more interesting and attractive by means of various competitions and events, e.g. Christmas fair, Valentine’s post box around St Valentine’s Day, or the Knowledge Competition about Bydgoszcz in English for the bilingual classes from Bydgoszcz primary schools). At the end of each school year, the Council announces and hands out awards to teachers, among others in the following categories: the most demanding teacher (Golden Saw Award), the most friendly teacher (Teddy Bear Award), the most beautifully speaking teacher (Golden Microphone Award), and the best observant teacher (Golden Binolulars Award). The Council consists of around 20 people eager to act on behalf of the student community presided over by the Chairperson and Vice-chairperson. During the meetings, usually held on Wednesday at 13.20 in the Council’s room (room no. 10), members of the Council plan future events. The activities of the Council are supervised by Mr Dawid Urbański, our teacher, a historian, and a great enthusiast of Bydgoszcz and its fascinating history.
