On 14th June a group of Year 11 and 12 student leaders engaged in a wellbeing youth advocacy training run by the Youth Advocacy team from Headspace Craigieburn. The students explored what the school was already doing to support student wellbeing and identified gaps that they could target with their own student advocacy project. Throughout the session, there was an emphasis on the importance of student voice and the role that student leaders can have at the school to empower other students and to improve the environment of the school community. Students were able to identify their own strengths that can help them on their student leadership journey. Some strengths identified were creativity, spirituality, zest, hope, respect, and love.
We thank Headspace Craigieburn for allowing our students to participate in this opportunity and we look forward to working with the student leaders to progress their advocacy projects.
