The hard work and dedication of a huge number of people enable the smooth day to day running of the school, and key among these are our Prefects. The prefect body of 5 Deputy School Captains, 6 House Captains, 15 Senior Prefects and Duty Prefects are not just Prefects in title – they work exceptionally hard and it is no exaggeration to say that the school could not operate as it does without them.
Prefects undertake significant numbers of duties before school, at break and lunch and the Senior Prefects have many additional responsibilities besides. All of this they manage with good cheer and dedication, showing they understand that true leadership is about service.
On Thursday 5 May, the Sixth Form Prefect Team were formally recognised for their unwavering commitment and service to the school over the past year. They attended a dinner for the team at Nonsuch Mansion, during which the Prefects were thanked for their service and the selfless manner in which they have undertaken their duties for the benefit of the whole school.
Particular mention was made of the outstanding leadership of outgoing School Captain Ronnie Guha. His kindness, humility, good humour and skill have made him an excellent leader and we are exceptionally grateful for his service to the school.
