CommCo 2017/18- The Key Committee for Iroquois Ridge’s Spectacular Events!

Iroquois Ridge is known for hosting some incredible events! From our annual scary movie night, to the art battle in the street, and ending off with Big Bash as our grand finale. Needless to say, this school definitely knows how to get its students engaged and excited for a year round of thrilling events, but have you ever wondered just how Iroquois’ events become the word on the street? The answer is simple, it's the ridge’s very own Communications Council, better known by our fellow Trailblazers as, CommCo.
CommCo is one of the main reasons why events such as coffeehouse, assemblies and concerts are so attentively taken care of and smoothly coordinated. Carrying the weight of the school’s prime sound system and technology on your back isn’t always easy, but our powerful CommCo team members are always up for the challenge.
