The student council or ”Senate” is a key organisation in the everyday life of the school as it works as the glue between the students and the school management. At the monthly meetings a representative and a suppleant from each class participates. Find the senate at Facebook here.
This social club organising the school parties was founded in 1860 and is as such the oldest student organisation at the school. Every school year Minerva organises five parties: Blomsterbal, broget, julebal, karnebal and prom. Each of these entails certain traditions and often an artist will be engaged to perform at the parties. At julebal [Christmas party] and the graduation party the teacher disco ‘Plader vi hader’ [Records we hate] is a fixture. Find Minerva at Facebook here.
The environmental council Green VK/Grøn VK has the vision of “giving the school a green and environmentally sustainable profile, in a close cooperation between students, teachers and other staff”. We are actively engaged in working towards a more sustainable world. This organisation is behind a number of initiatives: Flea market, Climate Week, educational initiatives, a more sustainable school, various events and guest speakers and more. Since 2014 the school has been a Green Upper Secondary school/Grøn gymnasieskole (https://groenskole.dk/groenne-gymnasieskoler) and continuously earned the right to fly the Grøn Skole-flag at the school entrance.
