Mullingar Park Hotel, Co. Westmeath 23/10/2019 at 9.30am-3.30pm

Welcome back to the new term and new academic year. We hope that you are feeling suitably energised after the summer break and look forward to welcoming you to the Mullingar Park Hotel, Co. Westmeath on the 23rd October, 2019 to our third Student Voice session. The day will commence with registration at 9.30 am on Wednesday morning.

This project remains open to any interested schools who are working on the area of enhancing Student and Learner Voice.

In May we asked you to work on an activity when you returned to school which could be designed to support and enhance the place of Student Voice, using the LAOS framework to guide your planning and actions. 

Activity: Using LAOS as a guide, participating schools are asked to develop one aspect of practice to enhance student voice in advance of Day 3 in Autumn 2019. Choose one statement from LAOS and map your school’s activity in the area of SV to this statement. Explore how this activity can be developed to embed SV in this area with one group of students – (small steps are best).  

While we understand that the work in this area may have just commenced at this stage in the year, we hope to provide opportunities for participants to share some of their experiences at the next meeting. With this in mind, we are asking all schools to complete the reflection form below which we will use to guide our planning for the day. The emphasis on the day will be on sharing your experiences with each other and affording participants the opportunity to learn from each other. 

Please access the link below and complete the reflection sheet (1 per school) and return to before Friday 4th October.
