State of the School

See what Student Council is working on in the next coming weeks and beyond.

In this new feature, we have a report on the state of what’s going on at Malvern from the leadership of Student Council. Be sure to check out the workings of Student Council each month.

October featured Spirit Week, from Oct. 19-23, Student Council’s annual tradition, featuring a few new highlights this year.

Student Council organized what they called the “Tailgate Olympics” on Tuesday, October 20, during Spirit Week. This included tailgating games such as cornhole and Kan-Jam and food from Jimmy’s Barbeque after school, according to President Alex Freud ’16.

The members of Student Council were inducted into the organization on October 19 in the Duffy Center. The elected members each pledged an oath to the organization.

In November, Student Council will hold a handball tournament similar to the tournament last year where students formed teams and competed against each other during the school day.

Student Council is also planning to have more tournaments in various sports including handball, volleyball, and another that is still being decided.

They are working on a collaborative Christian Service event with Villa Maria Academy, as well as a Student Council sponsored recreational trip in coordination with the Villa student council.

Freud says Student Council will start to focus on organizing the event with Villa. Originally Student Council wanted to do a smaller version of THON but ran out of time.

“Villa has something similar to [THON] every year. So instead of doing our own, we’re going to try to team up with them to make theirs better.”

Freud encourages questions or ideas for Student Council. Reach out to him at afreud60@malvernprep.org.
