Last week, a representative of the Victoria Student Representative Council visited Al Siraat to run an hour long workshop called “Teach the Teacher Ignite” for our our Student Representative Council (SRC) members.
The workshop included modules like Introductions to the program, expectations of teachers and students, how to ensure school wide student representation and the case studies of our school. The program is a student-led professional learning program for teachers that enables students to address issues affecting them. The training program has two sessions. The second session will take place during Term 2.
Students are empowered to have a greater say in decisions that affect their learning and their lives at school, and are given the tools to engage the wider student body to give all students a chance to be heard. It helps develop, enable and clarify student voice to enhance teaching, learning, communication and respect.
The SRCs were engaged in various activities and participated in different case studies related to Al Siraat College.
