Student Government Council

The Students Government Council (SGC)..

This is an independent democratically elected body by the students themselves. The SGC has a main objective of linking the students with the School Administration and the supporting staff. Therefore it is a bridge between the two parties. Unmistakably, this organ is the secret to a laterally harmonized and close relationship between the students and the school staff.

The Students Government Council works through thirteen (13) departments headed by prefects from A’ level, who are assisted by prefects from O’ level. The SGC structure accommodates prefects from form five (5) and form one (1) and two (2) due to the fact that they are the classes that are less tightened by the academic timetable.

SGC’S DEPARTMENTS.

1.CLUBS DEPARTMENT.

    This department coordinates various extracurricular activities among the students. It deals with monitoring clubs activities, inspiring, supporting clubs and organizing clubs events such as Clubs Day. It was first introduced in the year 2005 with a good number of clubs and currently there are twenty three (23) clubs in total which are divided into three categories. They are Academic clubs, Entertainment clubs and Social clubs.

Academic clubs are:

  1. Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics (Junior and Senior) and Quiz club.

Entertainment clubs are:

  1. Musical instruments, Choir and Modern dance club.

Social clubs are:

  1. African Union (AU), United Nations (UN), Home craft and Scout and Girl Guide club.

Being its main goal, the Clubs Department has successfully helped in discovering and nurturing talents among students. It has also facilitated the incorporation of good relationships and positive attitude within the school and inter-school wise. Clubs enable students to discover and develop their talents since clubs activities are more of practical and physical engagement such as dancing, drawing or doing physics practical. It brings a sense of team work as students work in groups without supervision. Clubs meetings are held once a week between 2 pm and 3 pm each Friday. Clubs encourage students to be creative and engage in various activities self-motivated without being supervised.

At the end of the year, a very exciting event takes place and that is Clubs Day. On this day all clubs compete in exhibiting what they have been doing for the entire year. They bring a sense of competition especially as it is a day for clubs to compete. The clubs day is a special day which is in the school calendar as one of the major school events. Since the winner is always awarded, students always fight for the first place to the best of their abilities. The members of the two (2) winning clubs, the champion and the runner up, are awarded prizes.

Note: Change of leadership used to take place in January every year. Until 2004 Form Six used to begin their National Examinations in May. That means a government would be in office from January of one year to the next January.

However, with the change of NECTA calendar whereby Form Six Examinations begin in February, the election calendar at the school began to pose a challenge for the out-going leaders in Form Six since they would continue with leadership positions up to the last minute just before the National Examinations.

As a result the government that took over in January 2008 effected a transition into the new calendar of election which we use today, whereby the tenure runs from August of one year to August of the following year. The aim was to ensure that leaders in Form Six leave office in good time to prepare themselves for the National Examinations.
