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


SC Presidential Elections 2020

The 20th SC Presidential Elections were successfully conducted from February to April 2020. The eight presidential candidates demonstrated strong communication skills and leadership competencies as they spoke in front of the student body and teachers to gain their support during the panel discussion. It was certainly a tough decision for the student body to vote for their ideal Presidential Candidate as all of them stood out during the elections. Jeff Cheah (3E3) was eventually appointed as the President-Elect while Shannon Wong (3E4) and Muhammad Irfan Bin Jamalludin (3N3) were appointed as the Vice-Presidents-Elect.

Peacemaker Conference 2020
JWSS has been an active participant for Peacemakers Conference (PMC) since 2017. PMC is an annual peer mediation training workshop that aims to empower youth to create a more peaceful world. This year, our students enjoyed a unique experience via Zoom Video Conferencing. We are glad that our students have learnt more about the various conflict resolution skills through this meaningful event!

Teachers' Day Celebration 2020
Organised by the 20th Student Council, Teachers' Day E-Concert took place on Thursday, 3rd September 2020 at their respective classrooms. The Class Chairperson and Vice-Chairperson took the lead during the quiz segment on 'Guess the Teachers' that was well liked by the students. Well-wishes and performances were all pre-recorded and were edited to perfection by the Student Council. Teachers were welcomed by the red carpet event at the foyer upon reaching school in the morning. The ongoing photo booth, well-wishes videos and an energetic team of the 20th Student Council Executive Committee members during the red carpet event has indeed created Teachers' Day 2020 a meaningful one.
