Student voice acknowledges that students have unique perspectives on education, teaching, and schooling, and should have the opportunity to actively shape their own learning.
At St Catherine of Siena, we aim to encourage student voice by asking our students to participate in our school, community and education system, to contribute to decision making processes and collectively influence outcomes by putting forward their views, concerns and ideas. We believe in promoting student voice and have established a student leadership team, who run our weekly assemblies, lead each whole school gathering, support school sporting events, promote environment issues such as Clean Up Australia Day and World Environment day and continue to support us in creating a positive culture at our school.
Children Learning Conversation (CLC)
Children Learning Conversations are an opportunity for teacher, parent and child to highlight the achievement and progress made academically and socially throughout the semester. The purpose of these conversations is to encourage the child to reflect on their learning and participate in the decisions made about future learning. This process values the role of parents as having a significant impact on their child’s learning.
