Student Voice – GRIP Leadership Conference

On Wednesday the 17th of February 2016, the Student Voice team was lucky enough to attend a G.R.I.P leadership conference in the city. We were very excited and couldn’t wait to attend. When we entered the building we couldn’t believe how many students were there! There were around 50 schools participating.

Roden, Andy and Carl, who work at G.R.I.P, went through the conference with us. We received a booklet with games and information about leadership. Students could win leadership badges if they won a game.

One of the games involved getting to know other people from different schools. The game was called ‘The Voice’ where we had to walk around and ask students who weren’t from our school if they could sing in a specific way. The first person to complete their game board was the winner. Unfortunately, no one from our school won but we had a great time playing!

One of the awesome ideas we discussed was investigating a new three step campaign to ‘stamp out bullying’ at Greenvale Primary. Some campaign methods include making posters and putting them around the school, coming up with a slogan, advertising on our school website and making assembly announcements.

Thank you to all of the students who wore their crazy accessories to celebrate the last day of school 2015 and raise money for the ‘Friends of Sammy Joe Foundation.’

I am pleased to announce that we raised a total of $257.35!

Well done to Brett, Shannon and Andrew who grew some very impressive ‘Mo’s’ in support of the Movember Foundation. At a special morning tea to celebrate the end of Movember and the removal of all that facial hair the boys raised $241.30 for the foundation. The ladies supported the boys with some ‘Mo’s’ of our own.

Student Voice Nursing Home Visit

Student Voice Volunteer Day

On Friday, the 27th of November, the student voice team volunteered their time at the Opal Roxburgh Aged Care Facility in Meadow Heights.

Each student made a short presentation to showcase their hobbies/talents/achievements. The students then played bingo with the residents and then read to them and chatted. We had a great time and the students and residents were sad when it was time to leave!

Congratulations to the student voice members Jalle, Ben, Daniel, Eden, Sandu, Zain, Samantha and Selim; and to school captains and vice captains Darcy, Joshua, James and Isabelle for volunteering their time, and for demonstrating their strong leadership skills and strengthening their links with the local community.

A big thank you to teacher Mareeka Papadopolous for organising the visit and to parent helper Lisa Kenos for her time.
