SRC TRAINING DAY 2010
David Mould and his organisation Second Strike, successfully ran MGC’s SRC second annual Training Day for all SRC representatives. About sixty girls attended. The 2010 SRC President Anagi Perera, the SRC Vice-President Kosheni Arulsothy, Christina Ignatiadis Middle School SRC President., Joanna Huczek MS SRC Vice-President, Georgia Hunt-Prokhovnik and Samantha Mountford , both members of the statewide VicSRC Executive, were valuable leaders who ably and enthusiastically assisted the trainers.
Judy Crowe, the Principal, opened the program with advice about good leadership to the gathered group of class representatives from each year level in the school. The first session dealt with the role, marketing and profile of the SRC in the college. Students learned about effective communication and advertising of a distinct recognisable identity for the student body.
After a lavish morning tea break students partook in a Strategic Planning and 2010 Calendar session. After entering their own birthdays and possible events for the year they broke up into special mission groups to set dates and make plans for specific events and activities to be held throughout the coming year.
There was a real buzz of excitement and enterprise in the air as students worked in large and smaller groups to share ideas and suggest initiatives for the Student Representative Council of 2010. Older and younger students mingled, discussed and argued productively while they laughed, ate and listened to each other in their endeavour to make practical and worthwhile decisions for the next three terms.
This conference was again made possible by a generous grant in perpetuity from our Parents’ Association which is always looking for ways to support both curricular and extra-curricular activities and programs for the students at MGC.Thursday March 19th was an exciting and impactful day for the fifty plus Student Representative Council members from years 7-12 who attended the event at MGC.
The outside presenters from Second Strike are experienced at working with student leaders in a wide variety of Victorian schools. They skilfully led the discussions and group activities which resulted in productive outcomes for the SRC reps who were inspired to come up with so many excellent ideas and initiatives for future exploration and implementation.
