​Kevin WANG
K. Wang.jpgHi peeps! My name is Kevin Wang and I am your Student Council President for 2019 - 2020! Aside from being the president, I am also greatly involved in the Handsworth community both in and out of the school. I am in multiple different clubs, sports teams and music groups; I often have to switch between different roles like First Responder, Grade 8 retreat leader, violinist and so on but feel free to come talk to me anytime you spot me and I'll answer any of your questions to the best of my ability and honesty!
Ridge S
Vice President
Vincent MAH
Secretary and Tech Rep
V. Mah.pngHi, my name is Vincent Mah, and I am your Secretary for 2019-2020. I have been on the council since Grade 8, so I understand what this role is about. When I’m not doing Student Council stuff, I am contributing to the Tech Crew and technical aspects for assemblies, U-Club, and LAC Lunch Buddies. Also, next year I will be the leader of the Tech Crew as well as the Student Council Tech Rep. I was also part of the school play Cast Iron Lily as a techie; I was the Asian nagging you backstage. Don’t be shy to say hi when you see me in the halls or in the tech booth.
Graham B
Club Coordinator
GB.pngHey, my name is Graham Best, I am your club coordinator.  There are many roles that I oversee as club coordinator but the main one is to manage our school's many clubs and ensure that our clubs and students feel involved in our school's community.

I am someone who loves to engage with all kinds of people, so if you see me in the halls, make sure to say hi. I really believe in inclusiveness and I want to make sure that our school is a safe and inclusive space for everyone.

If you have any concerns regarding clubs, make sure to let me know at grahambest453@gmail.com I would love to hear from you!

Lucas B.jpgHello! I am your school Treasurer for the 2019-2020 school year! As part of my job, I will be keeping up to date on the school budget throughout the year. This includes: making sure of the amount of cash amounts throughout the year, helping finance fundraisers and much more. Other than the role of treasurer, I enjoy soccer, basketball, skiing and many other sports. Nevertheless, have a great year at Handsworth this year
Communications Coordinator
JW.pngI am Joey Wang, one of the communications coordinators within student council in Grade 11. I joined the council in grade 8 as a grade representative and worked as that position until the end of grade 10. My current council position entails that I am responsible for the announcements, flyers, social media, and banners for all the council events. I am a hard-working and dedicated member of student council who enjoys helping and being involved.
Joy WU
Communications Coordinator
Joy W.jpgMy name is Joy Wu, and I am one of your Communications Coordinators alongside Joey. Our job is to publicize all the events that student council creates; all the flyers and banners you see, the announcements you hear, and the Instagram posts are all made by Joey and me. Please feel free to ask anything you are unsure about when you see me in the hallways or send a DM to @handworth_royals —I’d be more than happy to explain and clear things up!
​Yermin KANG
Athletic Rep
Yermin K.jpgMy name is Yerim Kang. I am sure that, in my role as an athletic representative, my dedication and commitment will allow me to serve and excel as a valuable asset to the Student Council. I avidly participate in volunteer activities as an outdoor school counsellor, a grade 8 retreat leader, and a grade 11 representative at Handsworth. As a recipient of Top Scholar and Outstanding Student Achievement awards during previous years, I embrace learning with enthusiasm. Moreover, I am involved in the Handsworth Music Program and take part in U-club, as well as student council. In my spare time, I enjoy listening to music and baking sweets. Next year, I anticipate running events where we can all learn to instill a commitment to service and to appreciate the importance of reasoned decisions that will make a positive difference in the lives of others. With my experience in the council as well as my ability to develop interpersonal relationships between myself and other students, I plan on carrying out entertaining sporting events for the school community! Thank you.
Michelle SUE
Athletic Rep
Michelle S.jpgHello, my name is Michelle Sue and I am one of the Athletic Reps for the 2019-2020 school year. I’m part of the graduating class and am proudly part of the French Immersion program. My passions include, but are not limited to, photography, horseback riding, and basketball.  This school year will mark my third year on the Handsworth Senior Girls Basketball team and I’m immensely excited to see our community come together to support one another, especially with regards to our athletics programs. I, along with my athletic rep partner, will oversee organizing school-wide Handsworth Games or events that foster a strong community sentiment and allow students to participate in a friendly environment.
