Petition to The Australian Government
Fix the School System
The English Industrial Revolution was a giant step forward for the human race. One problem was the treatment of the poor. They had bad work hours, unsafe work places, kids worked in factories and they had small wages. Most of these things have changed, such as, 8 hour works days, minimum wages and safety regulations in the work place. One thing has not changed... the school system. Ever since the Industrial revolution kids have gone to school sat in front of a board and taught to remember information that will help them get a job they don't necessarily want or will be good at. Study shows that people who go through school will forget everything they learn after three years of finishing school. This is because you are required to remember information, this is not a proper way of learning. The best way for someone to learn is for them to be passionate and good at what they're learning, this is why the school system needs to change. The system needs to find what the student is best at and teach them how to perfect that skill, in schools today students have to learn Science, Math, English and Social Studies. Students who fail at these subjects feel less intelligent and less capable then their piers. When really they are amazing at another subject that has been ignored. "Everybody is a Genius. But If You Judge a Fish by Its Ability to Climb a Tree, It Will Live Its Whole Life Believing that It is Stupid." -Einstein This change in the school system will improve the problem of mental health in students, dropouts, failures, etc. With all the jobs available today students should be able to learn what they wish. Please sign the petition so the future generation can do what they love, well, and care free. Thank you https://youtu.be/uLSv17iE_4Q
Petition to St francis Xavier College principal
St Francis Xavier College to change the date of the Graduation Ceremony
St Francis Xavier College Beaconsfield have made the date of the Graduation ceremony for year 12's on the 28th of November. Students and parents are very upset with this date as majority of students are away on this date and some even overseas, plans that have been already booked in and paid for and cannot be changed or moved. All year 12 students would like to celebrate their graduation of 13 years of schooling together. That will not be possible if the Graduation ceremony remains on the 28th of November. Us year 12 students and Parents would like to ask the date to be moved. If another date cannot be sorted out it would be ideal to have it held on the date of the Graduation mass (21st of October) as it has been held on the day of graduation mass in previous years. St Francis Xavier College we hope you understand our opinions and acknowlege that we all want to be together and with all of our classmates to finally graduate year 12. Please sign this petition if you believe the date for the Graduation Ceremony for year 12's should be moved. Please share this with others you think will agree too. Thank you.
Petition to Victorian Government, Public Schools Victoria, Department of Education and Training
Say NO to the Mobile Ban for Public Schools in Victoria
The Mobile Phone Ban passed this year is an ineffective way to reduce/stop cyberbullying and distractions during class. Abolishing such technology will rather increase the problem as students will be more inclined to use it despite the new regulations in place. Rather than banning, the government should focus on teaching young people how to use the technology on hand and enhance the experience through education, rather than depriving us of such a great tool that we use to learn. Say No and stop this now.
Petition to Highfields State Secondary College
Allowing the use of mobile devices before school.
For as long as the school has been open it has been a policy of if we see you with your phone we will ask you to put it away. They have now enforced it further to a point of taking our phones. These are our private property. They do not understand a lot of us don't have that much to talk about. A lot of us like to share what we have found during the time we were gone. For many of us we like to show each other memes. There are many schools within our region with a simple policy of no phones in class which is reasonable. But why can we not have the freedom to use them. Do they ever count for an emergency and we can't contact someone in time to save a life. This petition was simply made as a way to show the school that we want the right to use our own mobile devices.
