Groups in the school

JUNIOR SCHOOL COUNCIL 2017

The ministers are:

 

  • Aden: Minister for Engagement,
  • Alice: Minister for Wellbeing,
  • Charli: Minister for Communication, and
  • Lucy: Minister for Achievement,

Charli will be Captain in Term 1.

 

While each student minister has a particular portfolio of responsibilities the decision-making will be shared by all. The captain’s position will be shared with each student serving a term in that capacity. The aim here is to give more students a greater say in the decisions that affect their learning and their lives at Zeerust Primary School.

 

Minister for Achievement

This minister will focus on actions that will assist our students to identify and achieve their learning goals.

 

Minister for Engagement  

This position is about helping students feel good about coming to school every day. This minister will be focused upon sports and games and some of the extra-curricular activities undertaken by the school.  

 

Minister for Wellbeing

The role for this minister is to facilitate activity where students feel good about themselves. This minister will manage the being good being clever recognition program and help facilitate the daily fitness (and weekly meditation events). They will help children to resolve issues but they will not have disciplinary powers.

 

Minister for Communication

This minister will ensure that what the students are doing is promoted both within the school and further afield. They will contribute to Facebook and the School Newsletter via the principal. They will manage an afternoon assembly each week where parents can attend. 

 

 The JSC will meet regularly. 

 

SCHOOL COUNCIL

The school council is a voluntary body consisting of parents, staff and co-opted community members. The council sets policy and oversees the financial management of the school. The school council meets twice each term and parents are welcome to attend. Elections are held at the beginning of Term 1 and councillors are elected for a two year period.

 

PARENTS’ CLUB

Meetings are held twice a term in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and we encourage all families to become members. Membership is only $1 per year per person. Your ideas and suggestions are appreciated on how or what we can do to help our school and our children.
