Since then he has held positions on the council such as Grade 7/8 representative, Area Co-Chair and Vice President. This year Shams was elected as the very first official Two-Term Student Trustee Official two term trustee; a concept which was put in place by previous Student Trustees Al Rubaie and Fattah to provide continuity of the role of Student Trustee. Shams' role has also extended to the Provincial level as he has been elected as the Communications Officer of the Ontario Student Trustees' Association.
Shams is also heavily involved with his school through his work directing his school's SEARS drama festival play to representing his school at the International level in Business Competitions.
