Student Voice, Agency and Leadership

Young people who find their own voice in supportive school environments are more likely to develop a confident voice, a capacity to act in the world, and a willingness to lead others (Amplify, Department of Education, 2019). At Willowmavin PS, there are opportunities for students to be involved in making decisions about their learning and school environment. Leadership opportunities exist across all year levels with formal leadership positions for senior students.

Junior School Council

At Willowmavin Primary School, we seek to build a school where student voice is sought after, listened to and acted upon. Our Junior School Council is our student representative body that provides the avenue for students to have a say in the decision making processes of the school.  They are a hardworking and fun group of students that meet weekly during recess time, under the guidance of a teacher.

JSC members have the opportunity to develop their leadership skills by seeking feedback, suggestions and ideas from their peers about ways they can continue to improve our school, and ways they can contribute to the wider community. Junior School Councillors collaborate to make decisions based on student voice and report back to the whole school at assembly.
