The Nanyang Junior College
Student Council represents the main medium of communication between the school
management and the student body. It seeks to ensure that the voice of every
NYJCian is heard and that their well-being is taken care of. The Student
Council also plays a major role in overseeing various student activities and
initiatives that serve the collective interests of the school and the students.
To facilitate the achievement of this objective, the Student Council is divided
up into four distinct committees; namely, the Executive (ExCo), Communications
(CC), Welfare (Welco) as well as College Image and Branding (CIB) Committees.
The seven-member Executive Committee forms the policy-making and leadership body of the Council and is made up of the President, three Vice-Presidents and the Heads of the three committees. The President and Vice-Presidents ensure that all programmes and events helmed by the Student Council are in line with the College’s mission and values.
The Communications Committee acts as the link between the students and the college management. It provides a platform for NYJCians to voice their opinions and conducts regular Dialogue Sessions with the school leaders. It also oversees the running of various feedback channels such as the official Student Council Twitter and Instagram accounts as well as the Student Council website. To encourage better dissemination of information within the college, the Communications Committee also organises the Council Address which provides periodic updates on college activities and initiatives for the student population.
The Welfare Committee provides
services aimed at improving the quality of life for all NYJCians. These
services include the loan of the Connect and Contact Point, Lost and Found
Services as well as the provision of meals during the college’s Night Study
Programme. The Welfare Committee also initiates projects that meet the needs of
the students in accordance with the college’s policies.
The College Image and Branding Committee plans and holds college-wide events and activities aimed at bringing the members of the college together as well as fostering a stronger college spirit. The committee is also at the forefront of many college publicity campaigns.
Ad hoc committees set up to organize major college events are also part of the Student Council. All councillors take up both main and ad hoc committee duties. These Ad hoc committees help to run key events such as the JC1 Orientation, Council Camp, Student Council Investiture and Teachers’ Day.
