On 18th October 2018, our selected SRCs and non SRC members from Years 5 to 11 attended the School Leaders For Gender Equality and Respect Student Voice Workshop (SLFGER) that took place at the Melbourne Aquarium.
Three of our student leaders were trained to facilitate the workshop for the day. Students participated in various activities and discussions conducted by student leaders from our college and from other schools.
Each school worked and presented to a panel of education sector representatives the actions they will take back to their school and a recommendation for the panel. Thank you to panellists Dr. Mary Oski from Catholic Education Commission of Victoria, Peter Roberts from Independent Schools Victoria and Mitchell Sprague from VicSRC for listening to the students’ recommendations and taking these back to discuss with each organisation’s leadership team. The students’ recommendations will also be discussed at a future School Policy Funding and Advisory Group meeting.
It was great to see so many students across government, Catholic and Independent schools coming together to share their ideas about the change they want to see happen to create cultures of gender equality and respect across schools.
