Newbury Primary School has an enthusiastic Student Empowerment Community, consisting of students from Prep to Year 6. Student Empowerment Representatives are leaders of the school and are provided the opportunity for student voice and agency. They model the school values, demonstrate a high level of organisation, communication and social skills and exhibit school pride. Being a Student Empowerment Representative provides opportunities for the development of leadership skills, as well as skills in organisation, public speaking and presenting.
Throughout the year these students are presented with situations and experiences that allow them the opportunity to seek out student voice and lead within the school community. Student Empowerment Representatives are responsible for organising fundraising events, conducting school assemblies, developing and presenting Newbury News, representing the school at extra-curricular activities and welcoming special guests. Through their actions the Student Empowerment Community reflect and demonstrate Newbury Primary School’s values; Respect, Integrity, Effort and Community.
