Remarks:
1. Each student may take up a maximum of two posts in various clubs/ societies ie. One president / chairman & 1
other post.
2. School Prefect and Monitor are not considered as posts. Yet, students who have been elected for these responsibilities should
consider their workload seriously before they commit to other posts.
3. Each club should consist of not more than 5 committee members with the exception of the Editorial Board & the Prefect
Board. The whole committee should contain both students from the senior forms & the junior forms (F.4 & F.3)
