JWSS Student Council

JWSS SC 2019 - 1.jpg


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.

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 or 5 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.

SC Presidential Elections 2019

The 19th SC Presidential Elections were successfully conducted from January to March 2019. 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. Guan Yi Min (3N2) was eventually appointed as the President-Elect while Fong Jia Cheng (3E3) and Tew Chun Hui (3E2) were appointed as the Vice-Presidents-Elect.
