Student Council
  Student Council
The Student Council offers students the opportunity to actively participate in school wide initiatives, lend their hands to community causes, and see democracy in action. While representing OLGIS, these student leaders will gain responsibility, increased pride in their school, and an overall awareness of events at a local and/or global level.
