Many schools have a tradition of Student Representative Councils (SRCs) which played a major role in the birth of the new South Africa. Other schools have a long school prefect tradition. Then there are schools that use both systems. All these traditions needed to be brought together within the new context of consolidating democracy at school level. This resulted in the SA Schools Act stipulating that RCLs must be established in schools with learners in grade 8 and higher. The RCL is a representative body within the school with a definite function, because they have a greater say in fundamental policy matters.


The RCL is the official body representing all students at Umtata High School and is made up of students elected by their peers to represent them. At Umtata High, each classroom has an RCL.
