*School PrefectsAt FHCI there is a tradition of strong student participation and leadership. This tradition goes back to the school's inception. The Prefects are a group of mature and responsible students of good academic standing. Prefects provide enormous support to the staff and administration of Forest Hill and represent the student body in the eyes of the community. Elections for these positions are held in the spring for the following year. Teachers and current prefects vote on who will be elected as a prefect. As a recent tradition, twenty-five (25) Prefects are usually selected. However, in years where teachers find it extremely difficult to narrow the field to twenty-five, a few more are chosen.
*Student CouncilThe Student Council executive is selected each spring for the next year following election campaigns and assemblies. Executives positions include President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Internal Affairs liaison, External Affairs liaison and Head Senator. The Student Council is responsible for carrying out and planning activities such as Hillstock (see below).
*Music DirectorateA body of students committed to the management of Music related activities. Positions include President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Band Representative, Strings Representative, Vocal Representative, Stage Crew Manager, Student Council liaison and Members At Large.
The school has a series of several traditions. Examples Include
*Hillstock: A celebration/party for students and staff to celebrate the near end of a school year. Students usually receive year books on this day. It is tradition that the Student Council plans Hillstock, while the Prefects assist during its operations.
*Prom taking place on the last Thursday of May, with Hillstock occurring the day after
*Commencement (graduation) taking place on the Thursday before the week of Thanksgiving in October
*United Way Week and The Funky Dance Marathon
