Keep up the great work CLG!

SRC MEETING NEWS

We had another successful meeting today where our leaders once again showed their leadership qualities.

The CLG kids have voted to support

 

Stay tuned for more information in the future about HOW we will do that.

There was a lot of interest from many students about a lunch time dance club.  The Execs will be running this and details will be finalised by our next meeting in Week 3.

It was a YES from the students about an exclusive Year 6/7 area in the yard.  The next step is for the teachers and school leadership to have their say… This is a big decision with lots of people affected so it will take awhile to sort out, so please be patient.

Bullying was identified as a problem in our whole school survey so today our SRC took the first step toward understanding WHAT the actual problem is and how many kids are affected by it.    We watched this short movie

… and then all reps completed this survey

Our Reps will show this movie at their next class meeting and survey their classmates so that we can identify the problem and work towards a solution.

What a great effort from our student leaders once again.  Keep it up!

CLG GENEROSITY <3

Thank you so much!  The students of CLG voted and said they wanted to help those less fortunate than themselves and today they delivered on that promise…

Our CARING community CASUALLY (see what we did there?) raised a whopping $745.00 for the Cancer Council.

Thank you all so much –  enjoy a beautiful Easter holiday and we look forward to seeing you for more positive action in term 2.

 

CASUAL DAY LAST DAY OF TERM

Our SRC have been working hard to find out what is most important to the kids @ CLG and our classes have voted and had their say.  The top two items for action are:

  1. Helping those less fortunate than ourselves
  2. Bullying is a problem that we can help fix

Our classes have now been asked to provide ideas and suggestions for how this might look at CLG this year.

As a leadership group that is demonstrating action, the SRC have organised a casual day for the last day of term to help those less fortunate than ourselves.  Students will be able to come to school in appropriate casual dress (covered shoulders, sensible length dresses/skirts etc.) in return for a daffodil (gold) coin donation.  This is a FUNDRAISING day to raise money for the Cancer Council (a charity that the kids voted to support last year but ran out of time ).  If you do not wish to make a donation please come wearing school uniform.

Thank you for helping us to support those less fortunate.

NEW MOTTO & LEADING LIKE STRAWBERRIES

On our own we are a rain drop, together we are an ocean

This is the fantastic motto our representatives voted on for the 2017 SRC.  All reps were asked to come up with an idea and members today voted for this motto from Emma S and her sister.  It’s great don’t you think?

Our students leaders learnt about INTEGRITY today and what it takes to lead like a strawberry…  Confused?  Strawberries are the same on the outside as they are on the inside – what you see is what you get, unlike a watermelon which appears one way on the outside and another way on the inside.  We learnt that in leadership it is important that our actions and words match, that we are like strawberries and NOT like watermelons in our leadership.  We are sure you will see a lot of strawberries around our school.

PLEDGE – Kiana wrote a pledge for our SRC Reps to take today to demonstrate their understanding and commitment to the role All of our term 1 reps took the following pledge today:

I ______ promise to uphold the responsibility of being an SRC representative. I will be a role model to my peers and will always demonstrate the school values of care, respect and safety. I will try my best to be a good team worker even when others are not. I will communicate to my class after every meeting and be the voice for them. I will follow through with these duties to fulfil my role as an SRC representative.

We covered a lot of ground and our SRC reps are armed with some items to action and vote on.  Here is a copy of our action items for your information.

STUDENT VOICE ALIVE AND WELL IN 2017

Our fantastic representatives for 2017

Our first group of Student Representatives from Year 2-7 met for the first time today in the library.   We are working on different ways for our Reception and Year 1 students to have student voice and participate in the school, so watch this space! The SRC is back and we plan to be bigger and better than ever before.

Our Execs leading our students through our teamwork challenge

Callum and Jacob welcomed everyone and we spent some time getting to know each other, before Kiana and Emma got us all to play the newspaper teamwork game.  We had a lot of fun getting to know each other and learning how to work as a team .

      

Our reps working together to try and stand on a piece of newspaper that has been folded several times.  Team work can be so much FUN!

It was a very successful meeting and our Reps have been charged with the responsibility of surveying their class to find out what the kids at CLG think our school NEEDS to make it a better place.

We can’t wait to hear what the kids at CLG want to see happen in 2017 at our next meeting ON Friday of Week7.  Congratulations also to the Execs on successfully running their first meeting.
