Student Voice across the state!

With students, parents, teachers and a variety of stakeholders coming in from all corners of Victoria the 8th VicSRC awards - newly rechristened the Student Voice Awards - were a resounding success!

"The future of this world depends on our young people. Together we can make this world a better place. The time is now" - Whitney Eadon, winner Newsboys Foundation Youth Leadership Award

With speeches from the Minister for Education, a key note from two-term executives Bri and Mia and the ringing oration of the winning students, teacher and schools student voice was heard loud and clear.

This single night of celebration only served to highlight the hard work and dedication that is happening at all levels of the education system - every day! - to ensure students are at the forefront of their own education. The VicSRC is delighted to watch the entries for the awards grow every year and are always blown away by the quality and variety of student voice action and student agency that is shaping education around the state.

"When we speak together, our voices become a roar." - Nossal High School, winner SRC of the Year - Secondary School

Student voice is critical in education. Research tells us that when students are given a meaningful role in shaping their education, has a profound impact not just student grades and well being but also the whole school community. The VicSRC Student Voice Awards gives us a chance to hear the stories of teachers and students from across the state. This night is about valuing the collective genius of teachers, parents and most importantly, students. The Student Voice Awards showcase schools all over the state that are creating a cultural shift from Braybrook to Bendigo, Robinvale to Castlemaine. Our vision is that all students, regardless of their location or background, are recognised as the experts of their education.

This event could not have happened without the generous support of our sponsors. A massive thanks goes to the Department of Education and Training, under the leadership of Minister for Education James Merlino MP, the Newsboys Foundation and Pearson Australia for their fantastic support of the VicSRC Student Voice Awards.
