Announcement: GC Student Leadership Executive 2022/2023
The GC is proud to announce its Student Leadership Executive for the 2022/2023 leadership cycle.
Over the course of the past month, our Grade 11 aspiring student leaders have gone through the comprehensive leadership election process. Students had to apply for a leadership position through the submission of a detailed covering letter and CV, as well as the creation of a video to introduce themselves, their motivation, and their leadership philosophy. The Girls’ College students and staff were invited to view their videos and then to vote online for their preferred candidate, with our Grade 11 student vote carrying the most weight. The top four students who emerged as successful candidates from the voting process underwent a series of panel interviews. Each candidate participated in three interviews, with each panel consisting of members of the GC and BC staff and current GC and BC Matric leaders.
Jozi understands the needs of her peers and initiates activities that allow everyone to feel noticed and included. Her passion for working with people and facilitating difficult conversation comes from her Round Square experiences both in Namibia and as a Baraza Leader for the Round Square International Conference in 2021. It also comes from her wide range of engagements in a number of contexts that have led to her appreciation of the beauty of diversity. Jozi is compassionate and collaborative by nature and is very comfortable engaging in conversations with people from all walks of life.
