Student Leadership

Home » About Us » Student Leadership

As well as being committed to academic excellence, Jeppe High School for Girls has a strong focus on developing individuals and encourages learners to explore their strengths and to respect, tolerate and understand others.

Councillors, together with the House Captains and Vice House Captains, play a very important role in building team spirit  at Jeppe Girls, adding colour and vibrancy to the school with their skits, war cries and posters and the events they organise – from the Grade 8 welcome party to the Inter-house Gala.   Educators have minimal involvement in the organization of these events, which encourages the girls to develop their management and leadership skills.

The Councillors for 2018 are:

Ruth Bowdler, Erin Conroy, Caitlin Davies, Micaela Ferreira, Cailin Fourie, Bronwyn Geen, Dominique Goncalo, Sabeehah Hamid, Bethany Harker, Tiffany Harzon, Sherry Jiang, Thembela Khuzwayo, Taskeen Laher, Thando Madondo, Minenhle Makhubu, Motshebe Mangole, Phumelela Mbutho, Tsakani Mhlanga, Jaime Moyce, Baleseng Noko, Ntsakisi Ntsekhe, Linda Nyembezi, Danielle O’Donoghue, Lakshita Padiachey, Carmen Parker, Masego Ramatsetse, Nawaal Satos, Kgomotso Sekhukhune and Shannie Wu.

The Head Councillors for 2018 are Sherry Jiang (Head Girl), Cailin Fourie (Deputy Head Girl),  Ntsakisi Ntsekhe (Deputy Head Girl) and  Lakshita Padiachey(Deputy Head Girl) .

Representative Council of Learners (RCL)

Each class chooses a representative for the RCL at the beginning of each year. Meetings of the RCL are held monthly and provide a forum at which pupils can express their views. Opportunities are provided for them to voice their opinions and grievances and share ideas concerning the school’s functioning, administration and activities and they have representation on the School Governing Body. The RCL teaches pupils to think critically and logically and advocates the principles of fairness and equality. The RCL members are responsible for implementing school projects in their classes including those that assist less fortunate communities.
