As mentioned previously, 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.

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. As a part of this work, the Amplify team comprising of myself, Kim Seng, Ben Phillips, Tess Ennoss and Justin Bartlett will be undertaking some initial research with a sample of students to understand them more. This

will involve some surveys and face to face interviews to collect information about their likes and dislikes and their experiences at school. Any information collected will be aggregated so that no particular student is identified. Please let

the school know if you do not want your child to participate by sending an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
