Student voice acknowledges that students have unique perspectives on learning, teaching, and schooling, and should have the opportunity to actively shape their own education. Student voice involves students actively participating in their schools, communities and the education system, contributing to decision making processes and collectively influencing outcomes by putting forward their views, concerns and ideas.
At St Joseph’s we prioritise Student Voice by encouraging contributions to school life through:
Wellbeing surveys once a term—requesting student responses on school bell music, lunchtime clubs, Tuckshop menu items, discos and other current initiatives.
Daily Check-in in the classrooms—Through the use of a Google Form survey on Ipads (Year 3-6) and circle time (P-2).
Flexible Seating—providing flexible seating options in classrooms is all about acknowledging the impact our physical environment and learning space can have on students and their ability to learn. Students are able to select seating according to how they learn best.
