STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE COUNCIL (SRC)
We began our first SRC session with our twenty Grade 5 & 6 leaders sharing a delicious early morning breakfast. We enjoyed pancakes, fruit salad, yoghurt, cereal and toast. This was a fantastic way to get to know each other and celebrate the beginning of our friendship and journey as the 2014 SRC.
After breakfast we played a series of getting to know you games and then learnt about the format of an SRC meeting. We established some rules and procedures that we will use to help us function successfully as a group.
We also played cooperative games that helped us to focus on the importance of working together and contributing as members of our newly formed SRC.
We learnt that to work successfully as a group each member needs to know:
• what he/she can do to help;
• what other members can contribute;
• how to help other members; and
• how to accept help from them.
We completed the session by looking at what our 2013 student survey revealed. The students thought that a school disco, school fete and some lunch times sporting sessions could be possible projects for 2014.
