Bancroft is proud to have a student leadership body composed of grade 8 students. Students in "Cougar Nation" take initiative to create change, they demonstrate having and building strong leadership qualities, and they excel at teamwork to build community and culture on campus. Our faculty leadership team advises and collaborates with Cougar Nation students to develop communication skills and lift their voices on behalf of all students at Bancroft. Leadership students put together events including dances, fundraising events, faculty-student basketball games, run the campus news, "CCN: Cougar Campus News," and so much more.
The leadership students on student council created a mission statement for their work:
The goal of Cougar Nation is to have responsible safe students to help change Bancroft for students to have a better experience.
