Student Leadership, Voice and Agency

At Thornbury our students listen to and learn from their peers and adults, they ask questions to strengthen understanding and share ideas and concerns.  Our students actively seek feedback to progress their learning and give feedback to teachers on the learning program.

Our students develop their capacity to become independent, self-regulating learners and display the confidence to contribute ideas and make decisions about what they learn.  They reflect on their progress and plan for future development. Thornbury students have choice in their learning program and work with a growth mindset, believing they can learn through effort.

 

At Thornbury our students co-design and facilitate year level assemblies and information evenings.  They engage in organising and running major school events. Our students support each other during difficult times and learn to call out discrimination through our Respectful Relationships program.  They develop their leadership skills through our student representative council, peer support and school captains groups.
