KHS PREFECT BODY - Kingsgrove High School

In a school, organisation is critical, as is the inclusion of
students as part of that organisation. The position of prefect
is a position of responsibility and one which provides an
important connection between pupils and staff.
The Prefect Team has an important role throughout the entire
school community: they are responsible for helping set the
tone amongst the student body and for maintaining and
enhancing the culture of Kingsgrove High School.
Prefects are significant role models and therefore are
expected to demonstrate the values of Kingsgrove High
School in their daily lives as well as encouraging them in
others – both in and out of school.
Student leaders need to promote the good things, the things that
are the most worthwhile and the most true within the community
and nurture a better quality of school life for all students.
Students are empowered by working together to achieve a
common goal, a shared purpose.
Students have the power, or the authority to make a difference in
their schools.
Leadership is a challenge and should be for all students, not just
those elected into specific positions.
Adult mentors, role models, people who have the capacity to
listen, to help students explore ideas, to share their experiences,
to facilitate processes and to provide feedback form the
backbone of a successful leadership program.
The rewards for being a prefect are often intangible
but nevertheless, very real, and will often serve the
students for the rest of their lives.
Students often learn much about themselves and
what it means to work as part of a committed team.
They learn to develop many skills associated with
inter-personal relationships, leadership, taking
initiative, public speaking, organisation, time
management, staying motivated, accountability, etc.
Being a prefect means providing leadership to the
student body in the school, assisting teachers with
various duties , assisting in the organisation and
running of various functions and actively participating
in the development of school spirit and pride and
upholding the traditions and values of Kingsgrove High
The role of prefect also brings out the students'
leadership qualities for higher responsibilities in future.
The current opportunity which prefects have to serve is
a stepping stone for them to become greater and better
leaders in future, with a desire to provide selfless
service as well as respect the rights of those they lead.
