(1) Students designing their own posters and you tube videos for learning (2) More autonomy given to students over project work (3) Peer to peer learning between students (4) Designing spaces in our school using Communication, collaborating, designing and organising to see a finished outcome.Ms Dempsey talked about developing a greater sense of responsibility with students throughout the school by giving key roles of responsibility to students. These roles included:
Environmental issues, canteen duties, looking after locker rooms and taking class rolls.She believed that students need to apply in writing and go through an interview process to attain these roles. Also students would need training days to help them in their roles. These roles can be developed from first to sixth year in our school! These rolls need to given great importance and prestige within our school in order for them to be developed and respected fully within our school community.
