JUNIOR SCHOOL COUNCIL SPEECH

Tomorrow our grade is going to conduct Junior School Council speeches. If any student wants to be a JSC representative this year, they will need to make a speech in front of the class detailing why they would be a great representative.

A Junior School Council representative needs to be a very responsible student who consistently:

  • Tries their best
  • Is a good role-model for all students
  • Follows class and yard expectations
  • Shows respect to everyone at all times.
  • Is organized
  • Is willing to help and assist others
  • Is willing to give up some of their recess and lunchtimes to help students in the Friendship space and attend JSC meetings
  • Is happy to complete community events away from the school

If students wish, they can write their speech out and read it to the rest of the class. One male and one female will be chosen to represent our class.

I’m looking forward to hearing some excellent JSC speeches.

School Captain Leadership Conference in Sale

On Monday, the school captains went to a leadership conference in Sale. They were part of a large group of students who learnt about becoming better leaders by helping others, encouraging peers, being a good role model and learning how to organise events. The students were involved in some fun and interactive games and also had the opportunity to go on stage and talk about what they had learnt in front of 200 students from across Gippsland.
