The SRC is a student body that enables Student Voice and is formed to contribute to decisions that affect them as students and that are important to the school. It consists of representatives from each Year Level elected by their peers. The primary responsibility of the SRC is to enable the student body by engaging in the decision-making process of the College, presenting the student perspective on current issues.
It is vital that students have an active role in decisions that help their school in order to reflect the core values of Noble Park Secondary College. Students attend weekly meetings to brainstorm ideas or to pass on ideas from other students for fundraising for resources for the school or fundraise for local, national, and global charities.
The SRC also promotes student Health and Wellbeing through activities aimed at developing greater connections within the student population and between students and the College.
In Victorian schools, student voice is heard at individual schools through student representative councils (SRC) and at the state level through the Victorian Student Representative Council (VicSRC), the peak body for school students in Victoria.
Leadership opportunities exist at all years and are selected by a combination of processes, including written applications, expression of interest, interviews, and democratic voting systems.
Opportunities are available for students to apply for:
- Year level Captain/Vice-Captain
- Student Representative Council Rep
- Year 7 Transition Leader
- Year 10 Peer Support Leader
- Sports Captain
- Arts Captain
- Music Captain
- House Captain
- Environmental Leader
Student membership of School Council
Our school constantly encourages students to take the lead and to have a say in the school they would like to see. In pursuit of this, our school offers students the opportunity to become a part of the School Council. Every year, two students are elected from the SRC as school council members alongside parent, teacher, and community representatives and the College Principal.
Accepting this position requires after school meetings once a month where members discuss events that have happened throughout the year, pressing concerns and solutions to concerns brought up. Students on School Council are given insight into the finer details of what happens within our school; participating in this role allows students to build confidence when conversing with a variety of people which is a vital skill students need to equip themselves with to face the real world.
