Year 12 students, selected to become Prefects in 2020 during the College’s 45th year of operation were inducted at a Prefect hand-over this week. An afternoon of activities, devised and led by our current Head Boy Samuel Roberts and Head Girl Alice Oh, saw the 2019 Prefects team-up with the incoming Prefects to complete some interesting team-building challenges. The activities concluded with current Prefects presenting new Prefects with their badges and performing a Haka.
Just who the College’s Head Boy and Girl will be in 2020 is yet to be revealed. Principal, Mr CJ Healey says the school is maximising opportunities to evaluate the Prefect’s leadership capabilities and will announce the head students early next year. “These are important roles for leading our dynamic portfolio teams and indeed our entire student body,” Mr Healey says.
Prefects undertake a range of activities within dedicated portfolios of work to enhance school life through communication, technology, sport, sustainability, arts and culture and more. The skills gained by the experiences are life changing. Current Head Girl Alice Oh says the role has helped her to build her confidence and grow her organisation and communication skills, while Head Boy Samuel Roberts says, “It’s been as much about leading from within as it has been from the front. It has allowed me to give others the opportunity to grow and to lead or voice their ideas too.”
Long Bay College would like to warmly thank our 2019 Prefect team for all their amazing efforts this year and congratulate the members of the 2020 Prefect team.
