- To hold the Student Representative Council accountable and transparent;
- To formulate and maintain policy in order to promote an institutional sensitivity to foster accountability and transparency within student leadership structures
We encourage all Maties to have their say on campus issues, we encourage robust dialogue and we strive to develop a culture of Transparency and Accountability, not just on campus, but in the hearts and minds of our future leaders

The Student Parliament Executive Committee:
The Student Parliament Executive Committee organises sittings and other events that open a platform for any and all Maties to raise their concerns. This space is to ensure that all students have access to information concerning student governance. We serve as a link between students and governing bodies.
Student Parliament has no part in governing any aspect of campus, we do, however, serve as a check and balance on governing bodies such as the Student Representative Council (SRC), Prim Committee (PK), Senior Prim Committee and the Academic Affairs Council. Therefore, we claim that we are Consultative Governance.
