Student Leadership

The Prefects System

Headboy and Headgirl

The Role of The Head Boy/Head Girl Entails

Types of Prefects

Form Monitors

Each Form teacher appoints a Boy and a Girl as Form Monitors at the beginning of each term. The same Form Monitors for term one may serve for terms two and three, as long as the Form Teacher approves.

The form monitor is in control when a teacher is absent. All students should remember that the form monitor is an important extension of the disciplinary structures of the school and even more important an extension of the school’s administration.

Student Council

The Student Council is a representative body of the students elected by their peers to give voice to the opinions and desires of the students.

The Council is the official organ of united students’ expression to the Administration of the school. Through the Council, lines of communication are kept open between the student body and faculty and administration.

Each form has two representatives, boy and girl on the Council. The Council meets once per month, and the Council meets with the Administration of the school once per month. It is within the portfolio of the Student Council to offers suggestions for improvement in the school.

Peer Counselling

Peer Counsel is the term usually used when referring to the counselling of others in their own age group. This method of counselling has been found to be most effective in situations dealing with sexual behaviour, unhappiness, difficulties in relationships with adults – parents, guardians, teachers – concerning such matters as selection of friends, selection of clothes, homework, etc.
