MAKING school a safer place and gaining more sporting equipment are the priorities for Wangaratta Primary School’s student voice leaders.

Last week students Boren Chen, 12, Akeema Weavers, 12 and Thida Rous-Carson, 11, attended the first of four student voice forums.

They talked about the school and ideas to make it better along with representatives from all Wangaratta primary schools, Wangaratta and District Specialist School and Wangaratta High School.

“It’s a big role and instead of thinking about what’s happening with us we have to think about what’s happening with everyone,” Akeema said.

“We share together and join together as one.”

They agreed school was a great place but Boren said it could be improved.

“We want to make school a better place and a prideful place,” he said.

Akeema hoped the forums would provide her with more leadership skills.
