President

Nelson Lee

Platform

I’m Nelson and I’m running to be your next SAC President! We all know that Garneau’s culture is what makes us unique, so I want to amp that spirit up to a whole new level. I will promote Prayer Rooms, create a Multicultural Council, host International Street, bring back Spring Fling, look into a MGCI SeasonsPass, and more! When you vote for me, you’re voting for someone with unrivalled experience, amazing leadership, and someone who’s ready to lead Garneau to a spectacular place. I will put CULTURE first. I will put SPIRIT first. I will put YOU first.

Student Involvement

As president, I will be reintroducing Garneau’s annual fun fair. This means that I will bring bouncy castles, obstacle courses and inflatables. The main purpose is to encourage school spirit.

Diversity

I will be introducing a new concept called Diversity Day. These are day throughout the year that will allow clubs like BSU, Filipino club and GSA to showcase what their clubs have to offer. This will allow all of us to explore other cultures to deepen our knowledge.

Mental Health

Raising awareness for mental health is extremely important as there’s an ongoing stigma around this issue. I hope to continue MGCI Let’s Talk but expand it to new levels.

Vice-President

Jessica Guo

Platform

Hey Garneau! My name’s Jessica Guo and I’m running to be YOUR Vice-President for the 2019-2020 school year! This year as Clubs Convenor, I doubled the number of clubs fairs and sales, allowing clubs to increase their reach and capabilities. I plan to serve on an even bigger scale next year as Vice-President by having frequent rewards and activities for the house point system and organizing Diversity Days where clubs and groups can host activities about their culture and traditions. I’ll also put out monthly feedback surveys where students can win gift cards and prizes just for giving SAC feedback!

Ryan Chang

Hey! My name is Ryan Chang and I’m running to be your Vice President as well as the CHANG(E) you want to see at our school :))) With experience from being the Grade 9 Rep as well as the Co-Spirit Convenor, I have everything it takes to serve YOU because that’s what SAC should be, YOUR servants. I will increase the number of opportunities for involvement in SAC by bringing back grade reps and introducing student ambassadors and house colour leaders. I will also enhance relations between clubs and student council so that everyone can celebrate these unique sub-cultures where you can be yourself! Finally, I vow to keep SAC accountable so that everyone in student council is serving YOU to the best of their abilities. With these goals in hand, my dream to make your high school experience incredible is just on the horizon. So join my gang! And vote for Ryan Chang!

Athletics Coordinator

Eram Ahmed

Hey everyone, for those of you that don’t know me I’m Eram Ahmed. I’m going to be running for Athletic Convenor for the school year of 2019-2020.
I’ve been involved in the sports here at Garneau since I was in grade 9. Wether that be participating in a sport intramural or being on a school sports team I’ve been doing it all since grade 9. Now I wanna get more involved and I already started this year. I’ve been helping with the intramurals at lunch for a little bit by coming in early at lunch and setting up some of the sports.
My goal if I’m elected as Athletic Convenor is to make it so that the athletic banquet is better than its ever been before. And my other goal is to make it so that we do the intramurals you guys as students want. I’m hoping to include every single sport you guys vote for, time permitted of course.

Venkat Muthaly

I’m Venkat Muthaly, and I’m running to be your athletic convenor on SAC! I am in grade 10, and I’m running for this position because I want to improve the athletic experience at MGCI. As athletic convenor, I will bring in more intramurals and  inform the student body about events, enhance athletic banquet, and implement sports rallies; a new event at Garneau! Sports rallies bring support to Garneau, wherein there’s pep rallies at games to cheer for our teams! With my qualifications such as being essential towards the MGCI Walk-out, I know I’m best suited to be Athletic Convenor!

Social Convenor

Taira Mehta

Platform

Hi! My name is Taira, and I will be running for Social Convenor. Over the past few years, I have helped plan many events such as an annual fundraising gala for a small school in Hyderabad, India. You may have seen me at Walkout, different clubs, or on a sports team as I am an all rounded student. When I came to MGCI I saw the potential it held, and I wanted to help improve the community in any way I could. Since I have expertise in planning events, Social Convenor needs me. I have a new and innovative platform that includes having a “Grade Lounge” as well as implementing Nelson’s idea of event “Passes”.

Garneau, we have so much potential to do so many great things. Help me harness that potential.

Vote Taira for Social Convenor.

Hey guys, my names Sakina and I am running to be your social convenor for the 2019-2020 school year🎊. Throughout the year, people look forward to events such as semi formal, fall fest, and spring fling because those events are when everyone gets to come together and have a good time. These events are what I will be responsible for if I am elected to be your social convener for the up coming school year.
The dances are held for the students of MGCI so why not let you guys be more involved in what the dances should be like, for example creating an entire playlist from requests that you guys can make. The students of MGCI would be able to electronically submit song requests, and that’s what the play list would be made off of .

I have planned events outside of school which gives me an advantage and I believe I am the right person for this position, I have many other unique and fun ideas for the up coming school year and if I am elected to be your social convenor I will make sure that all the events we arrange here at Garneau are unforgettable!✨

Spirit Convenor

I promise more spirit weeks more pep rallies fun fairs more cafeteria events and spirit activities. Garneau needs a talent show and this will allow more people to showcase what their hidden talents are, and thus increasing school spirit

As we witnessed this year, the house colour system was implemented into MGCI, it was a step in the right direction to plant a seed of school culture and to revampt spirit, thus what I tend to do is to reinvent the house system. Furthermore, this will include new house colour names as well as the implementation of more athletic events and intramurals to get more involvement of students to compete amongst houses. We will also vamp up spirit by having more interactive activities with the student body as a whole through the medium of cafeteria games, and our classical donut eating contest. While that improves spirit, we will have our great interest also set on the much larger events of mgci, including our Christmas Show which needs improvement, the introduction of a new Iftar Traditional celebration and open up MGCI’s wider community to share in the festivities of breaking the fast. At the same time I will be looking to host more outdoor events at MGCI during the fall and summer months. We will have more pep rallies centred around the house colour system, including intramurals and more activities for everyone to engage in. The other policy which I would like to introduce will be the reorganization of the role of the chairperson, to be that of a SAC Watchdog, a member of the council who will receive additional responsibilities of being of aid to one of the convenors on their major events or will assume their position in absence or in the moment.
