Previous Position(s)

President | UCT Health Science Students Council
2010 - 2011

Medical, Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals

The Health Sciences Student Council is composed of and represents the students in the Health Sciences Faculty at the University of Cape Town. It serves as the highest decision-making body on all issues of student governance within the Faculty of Health Sciences. All council members are elected towards the end of each academic year for a term lasting one year. The council is composed of 12 members elected by the students.

The Health Sciences Student Council is part of the student governance model of the University of Cape Town. As such, it is subject to the Higher Education Act of 1997 that defines the Students Representative Council (or SRC) as the highest decision-making body on all matters of student governance at the University. The HSSC fits into the Academic Sub- Council of the SRC. Unlike most councils however, the HSSC enjoys more operational independence within the Health Science Campus as it is a satellite campus. At the core of the HSSC is the desire to be a body that represents the health sciences students in a non-racist, non-sexist and democratic way. Especially now, when the dynamics of the country are changing, it continues to be sensitive to the needs of the students.

Kerry-Capstick Dale Leadership Award | 2011

The awards are designed to recognise and perpetuate excellence and achievement in student leadership. This gives the awards a unique niche and positioning at the university, for they are neither bursaries nor merit awards for academic success.

All too frequently, scholarships and bursaries are awarded to a narrow band of sports stars or intellectually-gifted students, who focus - often to the exclusion of everything else - only on academic pursuits, giving little back in terms of involvement in student government, be it through sports clubs, student affairs or community work.

In contrast, these awards are deliberately focused on rewarding and encouraging student leaders who - by virtue of the time they commit to the university community outside the lecture theatre - enrich the life of UCT. They seek to reward students who, through exceptional leadership qualities in student affairs, have shown dedication to the University of Cape Town and have advanced the ideals of the university's Mission Statement. Such students must display an enlightened approach to life, generosity of spirit, humour and integrity.

This Kerry Capstick-Dale - himself not only a gifted student but whose life at the university was both rich and full - supported, for he believed very strongly in the concept that involvement in student government was integral and crucial to a rounded university education.

As far as we know, outside of UCT and the University's own awards, these awards are unique in all of Southern Africa, and there appears to be no comparable award at any other university in the sub-continent.

The Foundation works to ensure that disadvantaged learners are given the chance to become outstanding scholars in their own right; that they should not be limited by their circumstances-which are often beyond their control. Essentially, what we want to do is to remind disadvantaged learners of their right to DREAM, and equip them with the tools to achieve those dreams.
Our core business is to create these scholars. The Foundation takes on 10 learners, each selected through a rigorous process (which is detailed below). The learners are then entered into a programme of educational support, mentoring, personal and career development, and social responsibility. The idea behind this programme is to develop the learners into scholars, but it also has a larger goal in mind in that scholars are expected to contribute to their community through various social responsibility projects.
