Student Voice at Wirreanda Secondary School is about valuing and encouraging students to be actively involved in their school community. This includes being a critical part of decision making and being supported to bring plans and ideas into action. Our students are encouraged to create opportunities for themselves and others, organise and participate in a range of extra-curricular activities, assisted to embrace leadership opportunities and share their ideas, perspectives and concerns in forums shared with peers, staff, parents and the wider community.
To get involved, be sure to check our news updates, notice boards and Daymap.
