As well as being committed to academic excellence, Jeppe High School for Girls has a strong focus on developing individuals and encourages learners to explore their strengths and to respect, tolerate and understand others.
Councillors, together with the House Captains and Vice House Captains, play a very important role in building team spirit at Jeppe Girls, adding colour and vibrancy to the school with their skits, war cries and posters and the events they organise – from the Grade 8 welcome party to the Inter-house Gala. Educators have minimal involvement in the organization of these events, which encourages the girls to develop their management and leadership skills.
The Councillors for 2023 are: Congratulations to the new Councillors for 2023 – Tsionawit Abate, Victoria Baigent, Keira Conroy, Caitlin De Beer, Kiara Simone Dos Santos, Serah Garbutt, Comfort Ihenacho, Robyn Kamerman, Nomagugu Khumalo, Erin Kisten, Tina Kunene, Jessica Lazarou, Basiame Legoabe, Oratile Madonsela, Panache Magwaza, Laylaa Mahiti, Makgara Maime, Karolo Makgale, Mukundi Mashitoa, Homolemo Mathabathe, Nandipha Mfundisi, Botshelo Modise, Katlego Mokgatla, Thiara Moodley, Jade Moore, Zimasa Ngqawana, Bukho Njeje, Gift Nchelem Odum, Margaret Peterson, Cassidy Singh and Tyla Lee Templeton.

Each class chooses a representative for the RCL at the beginning of each year. Meetings of the RCL are held monthly and provide a forum at which pupils can express their views.
Opportunities are provided for them to voice their opinions and grievances and share ideas concerning the school’s functioning, administration and activities and they have representation on the School Governing Body.
The RCL teaches pupils to think critically and logically and advocates the principles of fairness and equality.
The RCL members are responsible for implementing school projects in their classes including those that assist less fortunate communities.
