Junior School Council

The Junior School Council (JSC) provides students at Brunswick North Primary School with a valued leadership opportunity. In term 1 of each year students in years 1 to 6 elect two of their classmates to JSC to assist the Principal, staff and school community on matters of school improvement.

JSC representatives provide a voice for all students regarding matters that affect them. They attend meetings, report back to their classes, and implement initiatives which raise student awareness of programs which make a positive difference to the lives of others. JSC also provides a forum to plan and implement various recreational, educational and fundraising activities for students during the year.

Junior School Council aims to:

  • Develop skills in leadership and negotiation;
  • Provide the opportunity for students to participate in decision-making which directly affects them;
  • Provide an avenue for the children to voice their opinions and ideas in a formal, structured way;
  • Involve students in fundraising activities for the school and for charities;
  • Develop citizenship and a sense of student responsibility.
