Student Voice is recognised as an important part of Aitken Creek Primary School and our Student Leadership structure aims to provide all students with the opportunity to have input into the development of the school and create authentic leadership opportunities for students.
Our Student Leadership Group attend fortnightly meeting with staff where they contribute to discussions about ways to improve our school and plan, organise, promote and implement a range of whole school initiatives including special events or fundraising activities. For example, our Student Leaders prepare and host all school assemblies, including our annual ANZAC Day commemoration assembly, and have assisted with the school Fun Run and other school fundraising events.
Student Voice Action Teams recognise that students have the power to influence change and action. Students are randomly selected each term to collaborate in their year levels and make decisions with staff around what and how they learn. They celebrate success and discuss concerns they have in order to plan and improve their learning environment. There are new Student Voice Action Teams created each term to allow for a range of student voice to be heard and actioned across the school throughout the year.
Community Meetings are held within each classroom throughout the week and assist in establishing positive classroom climates where students feel a sense of belonging and connection to school. Community Meetings are planned, have a purpose and provide a time for student voice and agency to occur. Students are able to share opinions and ideas, develop social and communication skills and actively participate in discussions about their learning both in and out of the classroom environment.
Other leadership opportunities for students at ACPS include DigiLeaders, Peer Support Leaders and Library Leaders.
Student Leadership aims to enable the voices of students to be heard and empower students to develop their agency and make change. Aitken Creek Primary School aims to encourage students to develop leadership, critical, creative and collaboration skills. All students are encouraged to act as leaders and support the school values of Respect, Responsibility, Teamwork and Achievement.
