A leader is a dealer in hope – Napolean Bonaparte
From planning and running school-wide events to assisting the school in its day-to-day activities, the prefectorial board takes great pride and responsibility in doing all these well. Formed when the school was in still in its infant years, the board and its members have increasingly taken greater roles and tasks.
The first few years saw prefects fulfilling duties in supervising students’ movement and discipline. Classroom orderliness and good student behaviour were expected of all the students in the school and the prefects were there to help ensure that these were adhered to. Prefects were also often deployed to assist the school as ushers for guests.
Over the years, their roles and responsibilities have expanded, in line with the school’s move to develop and stretch student leaders. An executive committee formed from top student leaders across all CCAs lead the prefectorial board in organising and executing events. Instead of just being ushers, prefects now need to know how to plan, organise, delegate and assume the various jobs associated with an event. School based events such as Secondary One Orientation, Primary Six Visit and the just concluded, first ever Prom Night at SAFRA Yishun involved the prefectorial board a great deal. In addition, they are given formal leadership developmental training from external agencies such as Halogen and Achievers to hone their leadership potential and ability, on top of the constant guidance from their seniors and teachers.
To date, the prefects number 72 strong and come from very diverse backgrounds and interests. It is in this various mix that the school hopes to develop future leaders for the community.
