Student Representative Council
Roxburgh College values student voice and involving students in decision making, and also for taking responsibility in the running of some of the day to day activities. Students self nominate to be their representatives on the Student Representative Council. They are required to submit a written application to the Principal. The SRC meet on a regular basis to share any ideas from the students and to discuss any correspondence from charities and organisations involving fundraising and looking to make changes around the school. They also look at organising special days such as R U OK Day or Teach The Teacher.
Teach the Teacher
Written by students, the Teach the Teacher program is a student-led professional learning program for teachers, where everyone has a voice. Teach the Teacher provides a space for students, teachers and principals to connect, explore and share ideas in a constructive and judgement free environment. By giving students a greater say in their education Teach the Teacher aims to create a positive community for all.

Our mission is to inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with people around them and support anyone struggling with life. Our goals are to: - Boost our confidence to meaningfully connect and ask about life's ups and down - Nurture our sense of responsibility to regularly connect and support others - Strengthen our sense of belonging because we know people are there for us - Be relevant, strong and dynamic If you are experiencing issues with mental issues there are people you can talk to: - Lifeline - 13 11 14 - Kids Helpline -1800 55 1800 - www.headspace.org.au - Beyond Blue - 1300 22 4636
