Mac.Rob launches student-designed SRC website!
It's been a long summer with massive rewards for the Mac.Robertson Girl's High School's SRC Cabinet. The team shares an exclusive inside look at their fantastic new online platform.
"In a world in which shared knowledge can achieve far greater feats than what each of us individually can, the website is a step forward in our intended collaboration with schools across Victoria."
Communication is paramount for the Student Representatives Council. As such, early last year we decided to leverage the technology that we have today to create a website made by students, for students. Not only does this connect the students at Mac.Rob to their school; it also connects members of the public to the school.
In a world in which shared knowledge can achieve far greater feats than what each of us individually can, the website is a step forward in our intended collaboration with schools across Victoria. We learn so much by listening to people and our aim is to help each other feel and become empowered, gain the courage to initiate their own projects and be the movers and shakers in their schools.
On the left side of our website we have an introduction to our team. As a representative of the student body we wanted to be as transparent as possible and for prospective candidates to know what our roles entails.
The Mac.Rob SRC has many sections in which students can get involved in: Cabinet, Executive, Family and Student Action Team. Applicants can directly learn about the roles and apply through our website.
The ‘News’ corners details the myriad of events the SRC organises and implements for the school as well as a calendar that keeps everyone up-to-date on what we are up to.
The SRC Budget page will be uploaded soon and will include to what causes our money goes towards through pie charts and we also intend to create a line graph analysing the past three years of spending and how we can improve our account balance and allocation of money to maximise student wellbeing.
Lastly, the Grants page gives information about when and how people can apply for SRC Grants which are essentially scholarships of money that goes towards paying for projects within the school community or to help financially disadvantaged students.
This website correlates with our values to be more transparent and increase engagement and involvement of the students at Mac.Rob as well as connecting our school to people across Victoria and the world. As a 140-people strong organisation we have a vision and dream to continue the powerful legacy of student voice that has played an integral role at our school and we are excited to see it grow as every day passes.
It has only been 6 days since we took up office but we are as exhilarated than ever to make 2016 a year of not only student voice but STUDENT ACTION, ENGAGEMENT AND TRANSPARENCY.
