Back in September, students elected fellow house members to become representatives for DPA’s new Student Parliament. This year, we have spent time listening to the voices of the students, sharing opinions, discussing ideas and supporting school events. Based on the data gathered from a whole school student survey, the Student Parliament decided to focus on three key suggestions; healthy living at DPA, student motivation and progress tracking. After much discussion, debate and deliberation, Student Parliament agreed on the solutions they would present to DPA’s Governing Body and Senior Leadership Team. They did a fantastic job, students and staff working collaboratively to reach an agreed course of action.
Members of Student Parliament were keen to report back to the rest of the student body during assemblies this week, celebrating and promoting their achievements.
It’s been a fantastic first year for DPA’s Student Parliament and we are already looking forward to plans for the new academic year.
