Pupils' association refused recognition

Pupils' association refused recognition

The Secondary School Students' Association has not been granted recognition as an incorporated body because it is composed of minors.

The association's solicitors applied to the Registrar of Incorporated Societies for the name of the Secondary Schools Students' Association (Inc.) and were informed it was not immediately available.

This was because there had been no apposite case of an organisation composed entirely of minors wishing to register as an incorporated association.

When Salient contacted the Registrar's office there was no mention made of any age requirement.

When specifically asked if minors could form an incorporated association, the answer was yes.

The association's solicitors said they were waiting for the membership of the association to clarify after the start of a new school year.

They would certainly inquire further into the situation, he said.
