The most commonly known prefects system in Secondary schools in Kenya has been advanced in VGGS by a structure of Students’ Leaders Council. It is a well-structured body of students who have been elected by the others to serve them in different dockets in the school.
Our system is a progressive one meaning that a leader can climb up the ladder into higher position based on her performance.
The management dockets run by the students council capture areas such as the Dining Hall, Library, Classes and Laboratories and Homes.
V.G.G.S. has been on the forefront to advocate for the democratization process in Leadership. Election is held once a year to replace the senior most school captains who exit school after writing their K.C.S.E. exams. Interested candidates are encouraged to apply for the vacant post and a vetting exercise is normally carried out by our electoral team. Voting is normally through the ballot system.
To distinguish our Leaders from the rest, all the School captains are downed in Blazers, Deputy School captains have Green Pullovers and the prefects have got green ties.
V.G.G.S. has strived to empower its Leaders through training sessions and participation in Students conference workshops whenever invited to do so.Such sessions have seen our students get more Leadership skills and gain confidence in handling issues with the rest. They have been able to excel out of V.G.G.S. by securing Leadership positions in colleges and other tertiary Institutions.
