Leadership development is part of the holistic development of the learners of Die Wilge High School. It is an honour to be chosen as a hostel leader but it involves hard work as well. The leaders are the eyes and ears of the hostel staff. Their duties are cardinal to the maintaining of order and discipline in the hostels.

The hostel leaders are supported by 2 leader guardians who support them in handling complaints and reporting problems to the Senior House  Mistress/Master.

Die Wilge High School is a “home away from home” and for that reason the hostel leaders are supported and led by the hostel staff to create a safe haven for every hostel learner.

A word from the Senior Hostel Mistress, Mrs R Clarke:

Die Wilge High School Hostel is "a home away from home". The primary task of the Senior Hostel Mistress, Mrs. R. Clarke and the duty doing teachers are educational. The management of the hostel and the teacher are in "loco parentis".

This is an enormous task which has the following as objectives:
