My favourite part of Congress was meeting new people, hearing and sharing ideas and also learning about things that I can take back to my school to work on."
At Congress, students pitch their big ideas for education and work in Action Teams to start creating plans to make these ideas happen. These plans are turned into full Action Plans by a working group of students after Congress to become VicSRC's advocacy platform for the next 12 months. VicSRC, led by the Student Executive Advisory Committee, then put these plans into action and advocate for the changes students ask for.
The top priorities from Congress 2022 are:
Trauma informed mental health training in schools
Stress free VCE
Student informed consent education
Neurodiversity in schools
School and sleep schedules
Free public transport for school students
Exploring different methods of learning
Localised Indigenous learning partnerships
Student-led mental health taskforce
