Students as agents of change

Someone once asked me what my ultimate goal as an educator was. I responded that it was to release change agents into the world. To see students who have been in our school go out into society and take action to make it a better place is for me the true measure of success for us as educators. This is why when I heard of what the Grade 3 students were doing, I was so excited and proud of our teachers and our students.

Grade 3 is currently studying the central idea 'People create organizations to solve problems and support human development.'

As part of their inquiry, Grade 3 Green invited Ms Natalie, our EL2 teacher, in to present her work with the elderly in Cambodia. 

The Grade 3 Green students were so inspired by her talk that they decided to campaign for more supplies for Ms Natalie to send next time she goes. And so the Granny Supporters' Group was formed. 

The students researched what they needed to collect and developed their own 'NGO' with different students taking on different roles.

Students made posters and visited classes to raise awareness and encourage other students to give to their cause - which is why your child might be talking about this at home with you as they look for what they can donate.

It has been wonderful to see how the students have taken ownership of their project and have developed a very real understanding of the central idea and the systems and structures needed to accomplish a vision.

We are very proud of them and expect great things from them in the future!
