Student Voice

Empowering our students

In line with our school philosophy which encourages and supports students to take initiative and responsibility, we developed the Student Voice program to give them opportunities to practise these skills in meaningful ways.

The program is made up of students representing each class. Student Voice is responsible for developing ideas and collaborating with fellow students, staff and community to implement and measure the progress of their group initiatives.

With students from all primary years involved in the Student Voice, all students have the chance to develop their critical thinking and leadership skills in some way.

Student Voice is responsible for a number of tasks and outcomes each year. The roles and responsibilities are linked to our Pillars of Learning:

Learning to Know: R-7 

  • Report on the learning that is occurring at Nairne School
  • Write articles for the school newsletter
  • Maintain contact with the local newspaper (The Courier) and report on whole school events.

Learning to Live Together: R-7 

  • Look at developing and maintaining practices to support students at Nairne School
  • Be involved in organising whole school events that promote diversity and acceptance of others
