Ivanhoe East PS is participating in the DET Learning Labs initiative to support further development of Amplify: Empowering students through voice, agency and leadership (Amplify) which is a tool that was recently released to all schools

throughout the state. We are working in a cluster of five schools where school leaders, teachers and students will design a student voice, agency and leadership (SVAL) implementation approach for their school. The learning and feedback from

Learning Lab schools will be used to develop tools and resources, providing further support for all schools, and will be included in the final version of Amplify.

Our engagement in this initiative allows us to establish a partnership approach with students, acknowledging that students are knowledgeable experts in their lives and that they can contribute to improving their schools and communities. The

team comprising of myself, Ben Phillips, Kim Seng, Justin Bartlett and Tess Ennoss are leading this work throughout the school and we look forward to sharing our progress with you.
