Alberta student voice.
The purpose of our conference is to demonstrate that our students do have a voice, one that we value and want to ensure we listen to.
The Student Voice program is primarily for high school students from across the province, including students from PSBAA member boards, non-member boards, separate boards, francophone authorities and First Nation, Métis and Inuit Education Authorities.
We include opportunities for our students to chat with our trustees, so that students can tell us what is important, what is working well, and what they would like to see changed or enhanced in the education system.
It is also a learning opportunity, where students are taught skills that they can take back to their school to influence change; in previous years we have focused on Media Relations and Public Speaking.
