Congratulations to our second semester SRC reps. These students will be presented with their badges at assembly on Wednesday. We look forward to working with them and their first semester buddies. SRC is an important leadership role in the school.
In keeping with our focus on developing students’ personal and social capabilities to help us achieve the academic stretch we are after, SRC members are being groomed to be leaders in their learning. Our focus in SRC is about helping students:
- improve their abilities to make strong decisions about their learning. We are doing this by involving student in activities and discussions that focus on their own thinking; particularly about understanding impulses and practising how to manage them more effectively. Semester 1 reps identified an impulse they would like to be better at managing, and the next steps are to help each other explore ways of making improvement. Semester 2 SRC reps will join in this process and will have the benefit of an experienced buddy from their class, who will support them.
- be more curious and understand about how to ask more effective questions about their learning.
Pictured are SRC reps working with the SRC leadership team during their induction session last week. we use Play Is The Way games to help us understand managing impulses.
