Meet the Prefects – Max A

It is that time of the year when once again we must say goodbye to our beloved year 13 prefects. But while I will leave the goodbye article to one of my fellow writers, it is my job to show the positive side of the equation, NEW PREFECTS! For all those paying attention, the prefect candidates have been cut down to 28 skilled few who after completing many grueling trials have won their rights to a different coloured shirt.

From a completely random selection, I have chosen ten of our new prefects to introduce to the school and give details on everything you need to know about them. Although it goes deeply against my moral code, I have been asked to ‘Top Trump rate’ each of the following prefects. Alas, I shall follow my editor’s orders without fail, but may receive dark looks in both classrooms and my own house after revealing my approximated and unbiased scores. I have chosen the categories on what I feel makes a good prefect:

  • Respect- How do the students feel about this new prefect? Are they strong but fair, intimidating yet well viewed? How much will they get pushed around by their fellow pupils?
  • Responsibility- There are many jobs and duties that our prefects will now have to complete. Standing idly by the mess hall, guarding the chapel pews to stop people escaping and of course waving their sticks around on divisions!
  • Friendliness- Prefects have to be friendly! It’s a simple fact of the school. But who after a long day of lessons and duties still keeps a smile on their face and a kind word to others?
  • Lairyness- Not one our new prefects should wish to score high this time, which of our prefects has come a bit too close to Mr Dixon’s office and caused a bit of trouble in the school?
  • Teachers Pet- How do I get a teacher to vote for me? Which of our prefects are hurting their shoulders from launching their hands into the air at every question?

As well as this I have included an extra fact about each of them as well as a quote from the prefect. Now, on to the prefects!

Well, as I much as I would have loved to include all of the prefects, I dont think anyone has the time or patience to read that long an article.

I wish all of our prefects the best of luck for their coming year of responsibilities and am 100% positive they will all make great role models for everyone in the school…yes even you Will.

Thank you for reading!
