“Solutions Delivery” ¬†- RCL 2014
The Representative Council of Learners or RCL is the only committee required by law and aimed at acting as a mediator between students, staff and the Governing Body. At the same time we are here to voice the opinions of the students of Wynberg Boys’ High School.
2014 will be the 20th anniversary of our democratic country. To be able to have a student representative body is a privilege. The RCL of 2014 will strive to empower learners, but at the same time encourage the power of education, humility and courage.
Sadly, in recent years the support for the RCL has declined as many students believe that not much goes on in the RCL portfolio. The reason for this is that we have tried again and again to bring the school to the RCL by offering the boys a choice to become involved, as opposed to involving them from the start. This year will be different, however, as we plan to bring the RCL to the school. The RCL of 2014 plans to restore the faith of the students in the RCL and leave this school with one expectation: make this school great, not for yourself, not for now but for decades to come so that you do not have to look back to see your legacy.
