In Term 1, 2015, Miranda McCallum conducted two in-school SRC Leadership training workshops.
The SRC training workshop is a complementary program offered by Peer Support Australia and is recommended for any teacher involved in their school’s Student Representative Council. Traditionally, the workshops are attended by teachers at a central training venue. These in-school workshops were provided to schools who could not attend one of the scheduled dates.
Sacred Heart College, Geelong/Newtown, VIC
Staff were really enthusiastic about their new roles as Student Representative Council coordinators. A 2 hour training workshop was held at the school by Peer Support, attended by two teachers and 14 students. A range of hands-on activities were undertaken to develop skills in leadership. As a result of the workshop, the school has decided to make changes to the way SRC meetings are run, including greater options for parent involvement.
“Thanks so much for coming to visit our school and help us both with our new leadership roles. We gained so much from your PD and we walked away with lots of new ideas and ways of running the current SRC committee. “ – Casee Honan, Teacher, Sacred Heart College, Geelong/Newtown VIC
