Student Voice

Engadine High School

Student Voice

The SRC aims to ensure student views are heard in decision-making processes, empower students to contribute to a positive school culture and strengthen the school community through active participation. Recently the SRC have exercised this role through the selection of new uniform elements and the organisation of projects requested by students.

Students are encouraged to engage with and actively participate in their own education. Any suggestions can be submitted to their year groups SRC representatives.
