Moree Secondary College's 2019 leaders were inducted into their roles at a special ceremony last month.
The annual leadership induction ceremony, held on Monday, February 25, saw 22 students inducted into the Student Representative Council (SRC) and 14 students inducted into the Junior Aboriginal Educational Consultative Group (AECG).
The role of the SRC is to give voice to the student body and to build positive relationships with teachers and the wider community, in the hope of actioning plans that will maximise student engagement.
The SRC’s key aim is to be a forum for student voice, to listen to and respond to feedback and ideas from peers, teachers and the community and to inspire change and positively impact the lives of all students.
One of the SRC’s first initiatives is for the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence, which will be held on Friday, March 15. Students will be encouraged to wear ‘a touch of orange’ to show their support and donate money that will be donated to the kids help line.
The SRC has been involved in this campaign for the past few years and many of the students are very passionate about the cause.
The Junior AECG is comprised of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students who are passionate about education and effecting change within school and the broader community. The Junior AECG gives students a forum to provide input and ideas on issues relating to Aboriginal education and local events at their school and wider local community.
Moree Secondary College is proud of the number of students who are taking an active role in effecting change within their school community and are excited to see what our future leaders will achieve throughout 2019.
