Part of our pastoral responsibility at St Andrew’s is to provide pupils with an opportunity to lead. Not only are leaders identified in Year 8, they are recognised in Year 6 as Junior Prefects. A real positive of the Leadership Programme at St Andrew’s is that everyone can be a leader in their own right, whether that’s leading themselves or others.
Four of our Prep School Prefects were asked “what is the most important thing about being a Prefect?”. Lets find out what they said…
Varun: “The most important thing about being a Prefect is being a good leader. I like being given a variety of responsibilities”.
Evie: “I really enjoy being a Prefect because you are immediately a role model to younger pupils. It is very important that you set a good example”.
Chrystal: “As leaders, Prefects have many responsibilities around the School, including Junior Playground Break Duty, duties in the dining hall, monitoring Chapel and raising the flag on a Friday”.
Austin- Head Boy: “A leader is a role model to others. I enjoy the privilege of using the Prefect’s Hut”!
