The Student Council at GPCI is a student-run organization that provides a voice for students and organizes activities that contribute to student life at our school. It is an opportunity to get involved in the planning and preparation of events and to practice life skills such as how to participate in an organization, time management, budgeting, organization, public speaking and advocacy. Our purpose is to promote school spirit and pride with planned events throughout the school year. A $20 student fee is collected every year to contribute toward the costs of the activities. It is a great opportunity to get involved in student life at GPCI!

Community Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteerism is giving your time to a non-profit group, agency or individual to aid in a project or task. Many post-secondary institutions and employers are now looking for people who are willing to volunteer their time to help others. One does not receive pay for their time. Students are strongly encouraged to volunteer within the community to help foster employability skills for their resume/portfolio and to help improve the quality of life of others.
