An amazing opportunity and great people.
I am finally thinking about positive things.
Loved discussing ideas and the possibility of getting our projects into motion.
Thanks to Kent Street Senior High students for your amazing feedback.
Our 4 week Redefining Futures program was an experiment in empowering students to become changemakers who make the world a better place. AND IT WORKED!
The expert 16-year-old students in Western Australia in 2016 identified these projects to address issues impacting on them:
- Creating an app that would help students to have their views heard.
- Developing a fitness regime for the school.
- Promoting mental health and well-being in the school.
- Building a social media strategy supporting students to cope with change.
Non-teachers in the Redefining Futures Team were blown away by the maturity, knowledge and wisdom of 16-year-olds at Kent St SHS.
I hope these Student Changemakers lead the way for a movement of Western Australian students empowered to create the world as a better place.
