The Student Representative Council met for the first time in 2015 on Monday 23rd February.
We began at 8:30am with a breakfast in our school hall. We had pancakes, cereal, yogurt, toast and fruit salad. “Yummy!”
During the day the students played “getting to know you games” and “cooperative games.” Through this process the members developed a bond of trust and respect for each other.
Students enjoyed the Web of Names activity. They passed a ball of string to another SRC member and said their name. Each person held onto their length of string as the ballwas passed around. This created a web which symbolized the bonds we were forming as a group.
We also established our meeting protocols and learnt about the roles and process that we follow for our weekly meetings.
The SRC gathered some ideas from other students throughout the school and began to plan their first activity.
We are planning a GREAT RACE with an Easter focus.
We hope you will enjoy our first event for 2015!
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.
