  • JS Student Leadership

    The introduction of student leadership roles in the Junior School begins early on.  Teachers prepare students from a young age to reach their leadership potential through various roles in the classroom.

     

    Students then have the opportunity to become a Student Council Representative from Grade 3, where students from each form class get elected by their peers to represent them in matters both inside and outside of the classroom.  They help to make the Junior School a safe and happy place for their peers.

     

    When students enter Grade 5, they are then given the opportunity to further these leadership roles by becoming Junior School Captains and House Captains.  In these roles they represent the whole Junior School and have increased responsibilities, such as hosting assemblies and promoting events that happen around the school.  

     

    Usually two boys and two girls from Grade 5 are selected for the Junior School Captain roles.  They are elected by their peers after presenting speeches based on leadership criteria.

     

    Our Junior School Captains display the following qualities:

     

    ·         Proudly wear full school uniform

    ·         Follow S.T.A.R. rules at all times

    ·         Act as a responsible role model with impeccable behaviour

    ·         Punctual for school and all lessons

    ·         Complete all school work to the best of their ability

    ·         Speak confidently in front of an audience

     

    Usually two boys and two girls from Grade 5 are selected for the Junior School House Captain roles.  They are elected by their peers after presenting speeches based on leadership criteria.

     

    Our Junior School House Captains display the following qualities:

     

    ·         Follow S.T.A.R. rules at all times

    ·         Act as a responsible role model with impeccable behaviour

    ·         Show sportsmanship behavior when competing in athletic events and in the playground

    ·         Work closely with teaching staff in assisting during carnival days.

    ·         Rally support for their House team

    ·         Speak confidently in front of an audience

     

    All student leaders meet regularly with teachers and heads of department to guide them in their important roles.
