Student Voice Drawing and Photography Competition

Drawing and Photography Competition

The upcoming drawing and photography competition is being promoted to our school as a fun, enjoyable and an optional student activity. There are two competitions but one student may only enter one competition for a fair game. Both competitions are already underway and the entries must be given to your classroom teacher by the 10th of August.

  • The drawing competition is open for all ages, foundation to year six, whereas the photography competition is only open for years three to six.
  • We are following a specific theme of sport/action for only our drawing competition and our photography competition has no theme.
  • All drawings and photos must be labelled on the back with the students’ name and class. Drawings are to be on an A4 piece of paper.
  • All of the drawing entries are not to be traced or printed and all photograph entries are to be original work and no selfies please!
  • If you are planning to take a photo of someone else you truly must have the person’s permission.
  • Thank you for your time and we hope to see you enter

Kindness Week

On Monday the 21st of March, the Student Voice Group launched ‘Kindness Week,’ an initiative to promote the values of kindness and acceptance across the school community. Throughout the week, students participated in a variety of activities that encouraged them to think positively, to make new friends and to perform small acts of kindness for others.

Kindness week began with the celebration of Harmony Day, a day for all Australians to embrace cultural diversity. The theme for this year’s Harmony Day was ‘our diversity is our strength.’ All teachers and students came to school dressed in orange, a colour that symbolises respect for one self and others. A special whole school ‘buddy lunch’ was also held on Harmony Day, encouraging students to talk to each other and make new friends.

Throughout the week students participated in a range of friendship building activities, including a family afternoon tea, classroom friendship games, lunchtime activities and junior story time. Below are some happy snaps of our wonderful students being kind to each other!

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.
