The Prefect System
The appointment to the position of Prefect is an honour accorded to a student by the School Community. It is an office which carries specific responsibilities. These are in three main areas:
- The Prefect as a Student Leader
- The Prefect as an example to other students
- The Prefect as an ambassador for the College
THE PROCESS FOR SELECTION AS A MEMBER OF THE SRC
STAGE 1: NOMINATION
Students submit a nomination form informing the College leadership that they wish to be considered for a post.
STAGE 2: Students submit a letter of application to the Principal in which they explain why they should be considered for a position.
STAGE 3: SPEECHES AND STUDENT ELECTIONS
The Executive and Year Coordinator will invite chosen applicants to give a speech to the year group in which they outline what they would bring to the position. Student elections are held.
STAGE 4: INTERVIEWS
Chosen applicants are interviewed by a panel who decide the outcome of the process. Previous School Captains may also be involved in the process.
There are TWO College Captains. The Captains represent the student body both in and out of school. They will be students who have contributed significantly to the life of the school.
