Leadership and Life-skills Training

The school places considerable emphasis on Leadership and Life-skills training.  The Life Orientation Programme is central to this training.

There is a compulsory orientation programme for all Grade 8 learners early in the first term to help the Grade 8 learners to settle in.  During the year training is given togirls chosen as members of the Representative Council of Learners.  Grade seminars can be held in a particular year to assist with learner development/leadership.

In addition, there are seminars to train learners who hold leadership portfolios, such as chairmanship of clubs or societies, captaincy of sports teams and houses.  Guest speakers are invited to address the whole school, or a group of learners.

Part of this programme is held out of school hours, and parents are urged to ensure that their daughters attend whenever required.

Pupil leadership portfolios include representing one's class on the RCL, serving on committees for clubs and societies and sports and house captaincy.
