Message From the Prefects 2013

We are very proud of our prefect system. This system nurtures a growing sense of responsibility and enables students to develop leadership skills, with an emphasis on courage, confidence, decisiveness and communication skills. One aim of the prefect system at Teso College is to foster a family atmosphere and encourage greater communication across class levels.

With many high achieving students in the upper echelons of the school, we hope to see our younger students benefit from the example set by the older students. Prefects are chosen according to two criteria: communication and assertiveness. Effective communication is both verbal and written and requires the coherent and cogent transmission of ideas. Similarly, assertiveness is a key aspect of communication that requires confidence and respect in the expression of ideas. Both qualities are necessary in leadership and are embodied by Teso College prefects, preparing them for success in later life.

Prefects and Councillors also play an important role at Teso College. Representing the proud traditions of our school, they act as ambassadors and diplomats for the school. All prefects help supervise younger students and provide an additional pair of eyes for the teachers. They are also expected to be guardians and role models, exhibiting adherence to school policies and rules, while challenging disciplinary issues with dignity and respect.

The Prefects’ Role

As a leader of the prefects, the Head Prefect understands the importance of teamwork and must organize and lead the prefects. The head prefect must attend all meetings with the prefects as required.

The prefect will act as a role model for students and promote the ethos of Teso College. All prefects must accept the responsibility of setting a good example for younger pupils and fulfil the following duties:

  • To maintain the standards, duties and responsibilities of Teso College students
  • To attend school events when required
  • To ensure all students adhere to the school rules at all times
  • To use the existing school structure provided for the necessary support to carry out duties

Prefects initiate or help staff to organize events. This can range from assisting with a sports day, chairing the School Council, producing the school magazine, showing new parents, teachers or visitors around the school and organizing fairs. In some schools prefects attend BOG meetings to represent the views of the pupils.

He should be respectful, calm, forthright, reliable, confident, patient, approachable, compassionate, courageous, empathetic, resilient, sensitive, trustworthy, honest and principled.
