http://www.jeppegirls.co.za/wp-admin/upload.phpAs 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 2016 are:

Savannah Aysen, Susana De Abreu, Raquel De Oliveira, Christie Despotakis, Yonela Dishi, Jenna Franks, Claudia Gomes, Firdous Hamid, Sinéad Hovelmeier, Nella Kyungu, Maryam Laher, Tasmiyah Laher, Bevelina Ledwaba, Gugu Mabhena, Keyynesia Martin, Katlego Matshwane, Woniso Mazonde,  Ntsako Mhlanga, Sasha-Lee Morare, Tshepo Moroka, Khanysile Ndaba, Bongiwe Nkabinde, Jenna Orchard, Lizan Potgieter, Courtney Tully, Thirasha Waidyaratne,  Erin Van Wyk, Angela Xia

The Head Councillors for 2016 are Thirasha Waidyaratne (Head Girl), Yonela Dishi (Deputy Head Girl) and Woniso Mazonde (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.
