As a school which actively facilitates the individual growth of its students, the Student Representative Council (SRC) held its biennial ‘SRC Training Day’ on the 15th of March at Canley Heights RSL. This was a day for us to truly reflect upon what it means to be a leader, and the qualities and skills needed to create an effective means of change within the school environment.
The day started off with students reflecting upon key qualities that leaders should possess. This involved forming into teams where students worked together to solve puzzles and small jigsaws which challenged their interpersonal capabilities and critical thinking skills. Resilience, determination and vigilance were only a few examples listed out to be essential qualities of a leader.
This was the followed by an active SRC discussion, where we sat down in different teams to work on and develop ideas that could possibly be integrated into our school community. Ideas are flung around the room, with students engaged in the idea of the school’s involvement in ‘Samaritan’s Purse Australia’ and the fundraising for a school ‘mini-bus’.
Ultimately, the day was a successful event for which students learnt many valuable skills of what it means to be part of the SRC and how valuable these may be in any future profession.

The SRC Induction Ceremony was held in the Foley Centre on the 17th of May, marking another milestone for the SRC. It is a day that all SRC members are recognised for their participation and representation of the student body.
Our guest speaker was Mr Guy Zangari, the state MP for Fairfield, who offered us some words of wisdom about how to be a good leader. He also told us about all the good things we have achieved, and how those good deeds have come together to build a great image of Fairvale.
Each member of the SRC was then called up to receive their certificate and sign their name in the book that bears the signatures of all captains and prefects since 1970. It is a valuable document to the school and a reminder to our success. Then, like always, we proceeded to make a pledge, making a promise to be diligent and a good leader for the students of Fairvale.
