SLC – Student Leadership Council
Student Leadership Council
At Jingili we value our students voices and the insight they can provide to improve the experiences for all students at our school. The Student Leadership Council (SLC) is a direct link to the students and their opinions. The SLC endeavours to enable all students to feel valued, be included and contribute to a positive school community.
Students from year 3-6 can apply to be involved to be part of the Primary SLC each year. The SLC meets once a week to discuss issues relevant to the Primary School. Teachers are responsible for helping students to run the meetings. This ‘hands-on’ approach allows staff to keep in close contact with student concerns. It is the duty of the SLC representatives to seek input from their class members and to report back following meetings.
Ideas, suggestions and requests for changes to school practice can be made by the SLC. A major focus of the SLC is our commitment to social justice, raising funds for, and awareness of, the disadvantaged.
Previous activities which the SLC have been involved include: Committees (such as deciding on new playground equipment), organising events and student competitions, coming up with ideas to raise money, selling icy poles after school, creating a free book swap, leading school assemblies, promoting school events and attend school council meetings.
