CLAN SYSTEM

THE CLAN SYSTEM

In a residential public school, the Clan System has a special relevance. Not only is each clan an autonomous unit under the care of a Clan Mistress and a Matron, it is a structured community within which girls develop great feelings of loyalty, of responsibility and of leadership.

Clan Captains and all other Student Officials in Metis are girls who have poise, confidence and the ability to take initiative. Their views are encouraged and they are given authority and responsibility. The School is divided into four Clans which compete on the sports field and in a wide variety of other disciplines such as dance, music, debating, quizzing, dramatics, amongst others.

The four Clans are named after famous ladies in their respective areas which are:-

Teresa: Named after Mother Teresa, The Nobel Prize Winner for Peace.

Sarojini: Named after Sarojini Naidu, Nightingale of India, first governor of United  Province of Agra & Oudh.
