A four year plan for the VicSRC

On the warm, sunny days of the 22nd and 23rd of January, at the Bastow Institute in North Melbourne, the VicSRC Executive team joined together with supporters and former Executive members to re-create the VicSRC strategic plan.

Over the course of the two days, we discussed and mapped out guidelines and plans for the next five years to help future Executive members and to set specific goals for the upcoming years.
 
This included discussing:
 
  • the VicSRC as a role model organisation;
  • promoting the Executive team;
  • promoting a better understanding of student values and the importance of student leadership in schools;
  • working with others in collaboration to help improve the VicSRC;
  • how we can help empower students and their voices;
  • involving students from across Victoria in decision making
  • the partnerships we have and the possibility of building new ones;
  • issues of geography and encouraging other states and countries to have their own state SRCs; and our hopes for finding ways to bring in more funding.

 

The days were interactive, interesting and everyone came home with a larger understanding of and confidence in the future of the VicSRC and how important we are to Victorian students and fighting for their voice in education.
 
On behalf of the Executive I would like to give a big thanks to the Bastow Institute for sharing their incredible facility with us, as well as Helga (for facilitating the days), Krista, Roger, Dave, and many other supporters and past Executive. With their help we achieved our goal of creating a realistic yet challenging strategic plan and are very proud of the work we have done.
