Resources on the Web

'Student Action Teams'

'SRC' BTN Extra story about students roles in an SRC election.
NOTE the link takes you to the related story that appeared on the show, to access the SRC story, go to the right hand column ('Extra Info') & choose the video "Students explain their role in their school election"
Could springboard discussions about the students' roles, and about the responses to 'how did you choose who to vote for'. Could be inspiration for your own 'documentary' of the school's SRC election.
