We value children’s contributions to our daily school life and listen to the views and ideas that are generated by the students. Our Student Council has been established to enable the children to have an active role in the development of Kowloon Junior School.
What is the Student Council?
Each year the KJS Student Council is formed from students in Year 2, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 to provide children with a more effective voice; giving the children greater influence and ownership of a wider variety of initiatives within the School.
How is the Student Council organised?
The Student Council is made up of 10 elected representatives from each year group (2 from each class). These students meet as year group councils every month. Within each year group a chair is elected who is responsible for running meetings and representing their year group at monthly KJS Student Council meetings.
The Year 6 students have a greater representation on the Council with two elected Co-chairs and the House Captains as automatic Council representatives.
What does the Student Council do?
In addition to their Year group specific responsibilities the KJS Student Council is responsible for a variety of areas such as Interhouse Competitions, Playground, Environment and Charities & Fund Raising.
As well as working with ongoing issues around the school, we will be developing the work of the Student Council to include more involvement in major projects during the coming year for example, helping with PTA events such as the annual School Fair and Christmas Disco. We also like to see Student Council members making presentations to the School Council from time-to-time on issues affecting students at KJS.
