ICMS draws students from all over the world attracted by our reputation as a vibrant social community with incredible student experiences. The diverse student body remains committed to staying connected via formal and informal social activities, both on and off campus.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) strives to improve the quality of student life for the entire student body. Elected by their peers, the SRC acts as an advocate for the student body with the elected SRC President taking charge of the events and activities. The SRC also works closely with the Student Experience Team to plan and organise a range of social and cultural activities, including major events such as our College Icebreaker party and themed events such as talent shows, karaoke, cocktail and movie nights.
The SRC is the voice of the students and represents all students’ views on academic and experience-related issues to the College. This not only gives students the forum to voice their views, but also gives the College valuable feedback when planning for the future.
The objectives for which the SRC is established are to:
The Community Contribution Scheme has been developed to nominate one or two high contributory student(s) each academic term. These are students who go above and beyond with their volunteering work at the College. The contribution includes high involvement in the student experience events such as O-Week, sport activities, community volunteering and organising fundraising events. Students may choose to donate their time and skills to embrace the experience within the student community.
If there is something you would like to raise the SRC, you can contact the President to voice your concern.
SRC elections are held throughout the academic year. If you would like more information about joining the SRC or upcoming elections, please email [email protected]
Incoming SRC President Tamzyn Harris has goals of inclusion, engagement and the celebration of diversity across ICMS campuses at the heart of her vision for presidency ahead.
The 2024 Student Representative Council (SRC) is a collaboration of both domestic and international students, who are all in different stages of their studies but have a common similarity in wanting to build the ICMS community.
Tamzyn is a second year Bachelor of Event Management student who grew up in Harrington Park. She attended Magdalene Catholic College, where she was a House Captain, Peer Support Leader, Student Mentor, and Dance Captain.
With both her parents employed as school principals, education was a priority in her family, but her brother – one of the Top 50 Bartenders in Australia – inspired her to study further in the hospitality and events industry.
Tamzyn fell in love with the ICMS atmosphere and gorgeous campus during Open Day and decided to move to the campus for convenience and the ICMS experience.
“ICMS is so different from anything I had ever experienced before,” she said.
It was a big move, but moving on campus was the best decision for Tamzyn as she enjoys having the beach nearby and has already made lifelong friendships with fellow students.
With a passion for event management, Tamzyn has volunteered to gain experience in curating fashion runways, concerts and weddings. She aims to work with global brands to launch their products and loves the idea of having a career in a dynamic industry that is different every day.
As the current SRC President, Tamzyn has set ambitious goals for her term as she leads the members of the SRC.
She is looking forward to fostering a greater connection between the Northern Beaches campus in Manly and the City campus in Sydney, by bringing City campus students into the SRC. She also wants to include International Student Representatives (ISRs), embracing different cultures and backgrounds.
As an accomplished dancer, Tamzyn is a big fan of music and wants to showcase students’ talents by introducing more live music on campus.
To make sports at ICMS even more inclusive and accessible, she and her team aim to organise social sports tournaments, floor competition nights and social activities.
Tamzyn aims to assist in the championing of Aboriginal culture and history by nominating an Aboriginal student rep. She also wants to make learning about international students’ cultures engaging and active with food tasting, language and dance to showcase how truly international ICMS is.
“My number one priority is improving all student life on campus. You want to come to campus, feel welcomed, feel like your needs and interests are met, and feel like the students that are representing you are delivering those services,” she said.
Excited about leading the SRC and committed to serving the ICMS community with dedication and passion, Tamzyn is looking ahead to leading with vision and purpose, representing an organisation that ensures that every student’s voice is heard and understood.
