JWSS Student Council
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.
Dare to LEAD, SERVE and INSPIRE
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.
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.
Refer to https://jurongwestsec.moe.edu.sg/character-development/student-leadership for more details of our Student Leadership Framework.
SCs are given opportunities to train and develop their leadership skills through leading and representing the student body in various internal and external programmes. Some of which include the following:
