What is the RCL?

The Representative Council of Learners ( RCL ) is a governance structure of learners as stipulated in the SA Schools Act, 1996 ( Act 84 of 1996). It is the link between the school and the management of the school along with the governing body.

  • The RCL is the body responsible for the creation of fine leadership hence why the RCL is also responsible for the encouragement of Active Citizenry.
  • The RCL must model and assist in the upholding of the school’s values and ethos so as to help learners to conduct themselves in a courteous and responsible way.
  • It is the duty of the RCL to ensure that the learners they represent subscribe to the code of conduct of the school.
Goals for 2015 and the near future: ­
  • This year one of our main focuses is to become advocates for leadership and active citizenry. ­
  • The RCL will be working with other schools in many community service events. ­
  • The RCL will continue pushing the improvement and upgrading of the school bathrooms.

The RCL is ready to serve the students; powered by a strong workforce in the form of a driven committee and Chairman.

“Leaders become great, not only because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.” ­ John Maxwell
