Student Voice

Students at Margaret Hendry School are active partners in their learning and the educational environment. They work with teachers and parents to share knowledge, set goals, and map out a pathway to achieve them. We take pride in giving children the skills to take responsibility for their future successes.

Students are empowered to develop personal agency and increase their sense of belonging when their unique voices are heard. They develop skills that are transferable into real world experiences, setting them up for success for all future endeavours.

Opportunities to participate in decision making and influence the school environment include:  

  • Student Representative Council (SRC)
  • Peer mentoring
  • Volunteering
  • Clubs and sports teams
  • Student feedback forums
  • Planning and running school events
  • Assembly leaders
  • Lesson design
  • iTime passion projects

When students and teachers work together it supports the development of strong, positive relationships. By embracing a diverse range of viewpoints and sharing in the responsibility, students are removing cultural barriers to create an equitable learning environment.
