Student Parliament aims to not only be a body which sits four times a year. We aim to be responsive to the needs of Maties and fulfilling not only our constitutional mandate but also to proactively add value to our Matie Community
One other important emphasis is to help educate our fellow Maties as to the mandates of all other structures of student governance to facilitate constructive and mutually beneficial cooperative governance.
As an organ of student governance, alongside Student Court and Student Representative Council, we are very sensitive to not encroach onto the Responsibility Centre of another. We are sensitive that as we are also learning and growing. Meaning that we learn from our mistakes.
We are firmly of the view that being independent of other bodies does not equate to extreme separation and that mutual projects are possible, and in fact necessary, to promote co-operative governance
