Student Trustees elected for the 2024-25 school year

For Immediate Release
February 28, 2024

GUELPH, Ontario – At their February 2024 meeting, Upper Grand District School Board Student Senators elected the Student Trustees for next school year.

For the 2024-25 school year, Hiba Mangat from Centre Dufferin District High School will serve as the Rural Student Trustee, and Zechariah Nasir from Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute will serve as the Urban Student Trustee. Both are currently in grade 11 at their respective schools.  

The Student Senate is a link between the students and school board. The Senate is composed of one dedicated student representative from each of the board’s secondary schools selected by the student government of each of the secondary schools. Alternatives may be chosen at the discretion of the schools. Each senator attends a meeting once a month to share events taking place within their school, to present ideas or concerns, and to address and provide student voice on important issues. This is one of the places in the Upper Grand where student voices are heard.

Each year, two Student Senators are elected to serve as Student Trustees at the Board level.

Hiba and Zechariah’s one-year term will begin on August 1, 2024.

Congratulations to Hiba and Zechariah!
