What most people don’t realise is that students make as much of an impact on us as teachers as we make on them, Wahroonga teacher Andrew says.
Last year we had a group of students who met with me once a week to develop a whole school study skills project. So rather than me create a study skills program and bring it to the students, these young men developed the ideas, put the tutorials together, filmed it and integrated it across the entire school.
These amazing students built a legacy that has now been taken up by the new student leadership team. Programs like that show it’s a team effort, all started by one student saying, ‘I’ve got an idea!’
