Being a leader is not about filling a position. It is about serving; following in the footsteps of those before you; molding a worthy, humble legacy… Ever remembering the core values as compass:
TRUTH. COMPASSION. SERVICE. RESPECT. ACCOUNTABILITY.
LEADERSHIP AND MEMBERS
All 4 board members are 'Paarlites', well acquainted with the dynamics of Paarl. Representatives from the different schools must preferably reside in Paarl. A maximum of 30% may be in hostel, having attended their respective schools for at least 2 years prior to being a selected member.
The board of directors have a combined background in education, social work, community development and extensive dealings with the youth.
The junior councilors serve for a period of 2 years. If a junior councilor has attended 80% of the meetings and activities, having provided valid reasons for the absenteeism of the maximum 20%, they are eligible to be voted onto the executive committee, or as a committee leader during their senior year.

There are 6 committees, led by the committee leaders. These leaders meet with the executive committee on a regular basis to ensure that everybody is on the same page.
