Student Voice

At Karingal Heights Primary School we create opportunities for all our students to have input in their learning and the broader school environment. Central to our approach is a focus on the Department of Education and Training’s AMPLIFY document.


AMPLIFY guides our staff in creating the conditions to assist our students in developing the behaviours, attitudes and learning environments that facilitate student voice, agency and leadership.


Within our school community we give our students the opportunity to find their own voice in our supportive school environment and assist them to develop confidence and begin to form their own identity. 



At KHPS, we currently empower student voice, agency and leadership through:

  • School Captains and student leaders are elected each year
  • Student Voice Meetings – Students from all year levels meet regularly to discuss ideas and issues.
  • All student Independent Education Plans (IEP’s) contain student centered improvement goals. These goals are reviewed regularly with student and parent/guardian input
  • Year 6 students plan their graduation activities
  • Students plan playground activities at break times
