The school follows a Representative Council of Learners (RCL) system.

Towards the end of Grade 11, girls are formally nominated and elected as RCL Executive (Prefect) members by their peer group.

After attending a leadership camp, these RCL members elect their RCL Executive President (Head Girl) and Vice President (Deputy Head Girl). Each RCL Executive member has her own specific portfolio where she is given certain responsibilities which aid in the smooth running of the school.
