At KWRSC, we value and encourage student voice and agency. Students have regular opportunities to show agency by providing feedback to their individual teachers using the PIVOT survey tool and also to provide feedback on our school on the annual Attitudes to School Survey. They also show agency with regular goal setting within their classrooms.
KWRSC is proud to have a strong Student Representative Council (SRC) that work together on real school issues such as sustainability, facilities, anti-bullying programs and policy. The SRC concentrates on developing leadership and community via purposeful student voice, and also organises a number of fundraising events through the school year to support charities of the students’ choice, or to support projects and clubs within our school. All students from all year levels (including Year 7) are invited to be part of the SRC, and meetings are held regularly throughout the year.
Students in Years 7-12 are encouraged to be part of our Student Voice Teams, which meet regularly to provide their input on various topics that affect their year levels. They offer feedback on policies and changes that are being made at the school and encourage community by organising events for their year levels, based on student feedback. These students also engage in leadership training throughout the year.
