About Moerlina Student Council

Moerlina Student Council was the focal point for our school's involvement in the Values Project. Councillors used the Project as a platform for trialing a new approach to leadership development. The project involved sustainable values mapping of Herdsman Lake.

The children mapped economic, ecological/environmental, social and cultural aspects. We then added another dimension to this framework to create our own working model. We viewed Herdsman Lake through four time periods - geological history, Aboriginal history, European settlement and the present, encompassing isues in relation to sustaining place, and the future if our community.

The Student Council then became the source of information for the entire school body, and were responsible to planning and running a Tabloid day, designed to teach the rest of the school about what they had learned.

Our students guided us to exploring Herdsman Lake
