“Learning to lead through service” – SLC Motto
Elected by the students and staff to serve the needs of the student body, the Senior Leadership Council (SLC) consists of students from Years 11 and 12. These students work pastorally in pairs with year groups from Year 6-12, speaking at assemblies and running social activities. They work with pastoral care groups to relate to, care for and take responsibility for the student body. The SLC provides a forum for student discussion of student initiatives, fund-raising activities and school functions.
Primary PALS run in parallel to the SLC. Elections are the culminations of their Year 5 unit about government, in which ruling in servanthood is promoted. Primary PALS serve while in Year 6, representing and caring for students in Primary School. They learn to respect the ideas of students in their grade and take responsibility for planning and advertising events.
Seven senior students meet once a term with the Work Health and Safety Management Team. Their role is to develop WHS awareness and skills in using risk evaluation techniques. They bring student safety concerns to the meeting for discussion and to provide student perspectives in recommendations to the executive regarding safety.
The Maphutseng Ambassadors is a student group who promote fundraising activities in school to positively influence the day-to-day lives of the people of the Maphusteng Valley in Lesotho. Our ambassadors are trained to become global citizens, by participating in conventions organised by World Vision. Here our students are challenged to switch their minds from those of passive listeners to generators of ideas, hope and advocates of change.
