The position of Prefect is regarded as the most challenging form of leadership. The Prefects are elected through a comprehensive and rigorous process annually by students and teachers.

Any student in the school must be aware that any disciplinary or academic difficulties that would result in suspension and/or probation may result in the preclusion of the student from the Prefect election/selection process. The records section of the school will be given a transcript of the disciplinary proceedings of any student. The Prefect Selection Panel, in consultation with the Principal, will determine if a student with Academic or Disciplinary problems can run for Prefectship.

Prefects have an opportunity and responsibility to:

  • Exemplify the highest standards in the area of school dress and deportment at all times.
  • Represent the school at outside school functions when requested.
  • Act as a liaison between teachers, students and the administration.
