I appreciate that it is a privilege that I have been elected as A SRC representative. I acknowledge that this is a great honour and I will ensure that I make my school proud of me. I know that I have the responsibility of attending each SRC meeting and participating fully in all SRC activities. I stand by Maclean High School's motto, "Deeds, not Words" and hope to emulate it at all times.
