Wodonga Senior SC hosted a Regional Student Representative Conference on Friday 1 June. Sarah Tilev attended the conference as part of our team of five students. This is Sarah’s reflection of the day.
“This year WSSC was lucky enough to be the host of a Victorian Student Leadership Conference. Four schools from around the Hume region participated in a day jam-packed full of activities and workshops, run by Erin from the VIC SRC, all building our skills and knowledge on how to run a successful Student Council. One of the most valuable things we took away from the day was running a campaign in about 15 minutes. We came up with a catchy name; ‘Operation Motivation’ and a purpose – To put a smile on the students faces, and after writing short, inspirational messages on a bunch of sticky notes we were unleashed into the school grounds and stuck our little notes anywhere they would stick. In doing so, we all learnt how fantastically easy it is to run a campaign without funds and weeks of planning. The conference left us with heaps of great games and activities to bring back to our Student Council and we can’t wait to share them with the other members.”
