Overview


At the apex of Student Leadership in JWSS, our Student Councillors (SCs) represent the student population and serve as the vital link between the students and the school management for the continuous improvement of student welfare, school programmes and infrastructure.

Vision

Dare to LEADSERVE and INSPIRE

Emblem

The olive branch represents the SCs as caring leaders who are humble and willing to serve the school.

The gryphon, a traditional symbol of leadership for centuries, is a mythical creature that possesses an eagle’s agility and speed combined with a lion’s strength and courage. It reflects our SCs’ confidence and competency in embodying leadership.

The five stars represent our school values – respect, resilience, integrity, care and excellence.

Leadership Framework


At the end of their 4 years of leadership journey, the SCs will have grown in their capacity to lead others with competence and care, and influence their peers to bring about a positive change to the school and society through meaningful collaborations.

Highlights

21st Student Council Presidential Elections 2021

The 21st Student Council Presidential Election was conducted successfully from February to March 2021. The eight presidential candidates demonstrated strong communication skills and leadership competencies as they eloquently answered the questions during the panel discussion. It was certainly a tough decision for the student body and school staff to vote for their ideal Presidential Candidate as all of them stood out during the election. 

Nur A'aliah(3E4) was eventually appointed as the President-Elect while Chevil Mun(3E1) and Jonathan Tan(3E2) were appointed as the Vice-Presidents-Elect.

Teachers’ Day Celebrations 2021
Organised by the 21th Student Council, the Teachers’ Day Celebration took place on Thursday, 3rd September 2021. The day started off with a fun and exciting morning for the teachers as they were welcomed with a red carpet entrance at the foyer upon reaching school. Photo-booths were also set up for teachers to doll up and have their pictures taken at the foyer. An E-concert comprising of students’ well-wishes was then screened for the teachers and students to watch and enjoy. The Class Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson then took the lead for some class activities, which were positively received and well-liked by the teachers and students! The dedicated effort of the 21th Student Council Executive Committee members culminated in a memorable and meaningful Teachers’ Day 2021 for our teachers, staff and students!

Our Student Council Investiture and Student Leaders' Appointment Ceremony is an event held annually to highlight the school's emphasis on student leadership development as well as to acknowledge the importance of each Student Leader's appointment in their respective groups. For this year, the Student Council Investiture and Student Leaders' Appointment Ceremony took place on 30th August, Monday via Zoom starting with Mr. Michael’s opening remarks followed by in-class appointment ceremony. The highlight of the Investiture was the affirmation notes from their CCA Teachers and Parents, which affirmed the students and motivated them to continue their good work! In addition, the students participated in the school-wide individual Kahoot which allow the students to know more about the CCAs in JWSS!
