Young people who find their own voice in supportive school environments are more likely to develop a confident voice, a capacity to act in the world, and a willingness to lead others.
By empowering students we enhance student engagement and enrich their participation in the classroom, school and community. We help students to ‘own’ their learning and development, and create a positive climate for learning.
Student voice is a key component of the Education State vision. The Framework for Improving Student Outcomes encourages schools to make student voice a priority and to empower students to fully and proudly participate in school life. Student voice acknowledges that students have unique perspectives on learning, teaching, and schooling, and should have the opportunity to actively shape their own education.
All students are empowered to learn and achieve, experiencing high quality teaching practice and the best conditions for learning which equip them with the knowledge, skills and dispositions for lifelong learning and shaping the world around them.

The JSC represent the students and it provides the students with a say in our school development.
Each class in years 2-6 elect 2 representatives who meet regularly. Students are also encouraged to seek input and communicate with the Foundation students.
Students receive classroom awards when they demonstrate the school values, classroom expectations and rights and responsibilities.
These awards are presented at our School Assembly at the end of every term.
At the end of the year the school has a ceremony to highlight and award student recognition certificates and trophies. These are awarded to students who have been consistent as learner and valuable citizens of the Thomastown meadows Primary school community.
Our student leaders are identified by wearing Student Leaders badges.
