House Captains

Rhenish Girls' High School has three houses: Weber, Terlinden and van der Stel. Girls are assigned to their houses either through family history or random selection. House points are earned throughout the year for participation and performance in all inter house events, as well as for academic performance (Boff Badges). The winning House is announced at the annual Prize Giving.

House Captains and Vice Captains

The roles and responsibilities of the House Captains and Vice Captains are twofold:

  1. They have an administrative duty to arrange for and see to attendance and entries in all inter house activities/events. These include being in charge of inter house swimming and athletics entries, entering participants in inter house quizzes and public speaking, inter house plays, a Capella competitions, as well as liaising with the appropriate staff members to see to all logistical issues pertaining to inter house events.
  2. They are responsible for the spirit in the house. They should motivate and inspire their house members to participate and excel in as many inter house activities as possible. They should compose cheers for their houses and foster healthy competition between all three houses. They have to work closely with the staff member assigned as their House Co-ordinator.



Nomination and voting for Captains and Vice Captains take place in the fourth term after the LC, Mentors and Matric Committee have been selected.

All Grade 11s are eligible to stand, except for the newly chosen LC members.

The Grade 11s of each house vote for their House and Vice Captains within their respective houses.

Newly elected House Captains and Vice Captains are announced during the final assembly at year-end.
