​​​​Handsworth Student Council 2022 - 2023

​Nargess Shokouhian
​Hey Handsworth! I’m Nargess Shokouhian (she/her/hers) and I am one of your 2022/2023 Co-Presidents. I have been in Student Council since Grade 9 and I was previously the Diversity Rep. This year, I, along with Duncan Murch, plan to put on loads of fun events such as sports tournaments, theme days and festive activities. I hope to make this school year the best it can be. A little bit about me: outside of Council, I have multiple other leadership roles: I am the 
Co-President of the Art Club, the Yearbook Coordinator, and a Grade 8 Retreat Leader! My biggest leadership role is one that is outside of school, where I am a tennis coach. This role does not only stem from my love for tennis, but it has also taught me countless leadership skills, which will undoubtedly make me a better Co-President. Aside from the time I spend playing tennis, I also love to ski, read, watch sunsets, and take lots and lots of photos. I enjoy spending time with my friends and love to socialize. I hope to use my organization skills, motivation, and dedication to make school a more fun and comfortable space for all! ​
​​Duncan Murch

​Hi Handsworth, my name is Duncan Murch (he/him) and I am one of your student 2022/2023 Student council Co-Presidents. I have been a member of the student council since grade 8 and I am currently the secretary. This year, I took part in 3 clubs at our school, and I also played on the Football team as well as the Ultimate Frisbee team. Outside of school I enjoy playing music, playing a variety of sports such as flag football and soccer as well acting. Nargess and I are here to make sure that 2022/2023 is a memorable year for everyone, full of fun events. I am qualified for this position as I am very involved in​ our community and because of my experience in council and other leadership roles such as the great 8 retreat.
​Noa Mammone

​Hey everyone! My name is Noa Mammone (she/her/hers), and I am your 2022/2023 student council Secretary! The past couple of years have been a whirlwind of new learning opportunities for everyone and my goal through Student Council is to help us all migrate towards new beginnings. In my time at Handsworth, I have assisted in the arts department, been a Grade 11 Representative in council, a member of the District Student Leadership Council, the student representative in Policy 409: Anti-Racism and Equity through Cultural Diversity, as well as presidential roles in 2 of Handsworth’s clubs, Jack.org and Art Club. Outside of school, I enjoy adventuring with my friends, music, art, cooking, baking, and working! With my organization, communication, and time-management skills that I have expanded over the last year in Student Council I know can bring those to the position of Secretary. I will strive to make sure that Handsworth and the school district is an inclusive, safe space for the students in our community. ​​

Hi! I’m Ashley (she/her) and I’m your 2022 Student Council treasurer! A little bit about me is I spend most of my time dancing and teaching dance to kids. But when I have spare time, I like to bake and cook, listen to music, and take lots of photos. I’m excited to be a part of the student council this year as your treasurer again, and I’ll make sure to provide you all a fair budget that’ll give you all a chance to enjoy the things you love to do. If you have any questions or ideas to better our school, feel free to find me in the halls!

Charlie Caddick
Arts/Athletic Representative

Hey there! My name is Charlie Caddick (he/him). This year, I am going to be your Arts/Athletic Student Council Rep for 2022-2023. I was born in Vancouver, and I moved to North Vancouver in Grade 7 where I started at Cleveland Elementary. I love sports and have played on a number of sports teams including soccer, ultimate, sailing and flag football. I also love skiing, hiking and camping. I have also always been very passionate about theater. I have been a part of the pre-professional program at Arts Umbrella for 3 years and really looking forward to getting more involved with the Handsworth theater program and the final play in Grade 12. The Arts/Athletic Council Rep position requires someone engaged, enthusiastic and social, and I believe that I have all of those qualities. As well as that, I was the Arts/ Athletic Rep last term, so I have the expertise to run and improve all of the current and future events. Finally, you can always message me on Microsoft Teams if you have any suggestions or comments.​
