Perfect Prefects

Perfect Prefects are children from Years 5 and 6 who have volunteered to give up our lunchtimes to help around the school.  Year 4 take over from Year 6 in Term 4 as they need to focus on their tests. Our duties include collecting the recycling,  answering the telephone, tidying the cloakrooms and organising the ICT equipment.


To be a prefect, we had to write a letter to Mr Hamlen  to persuade him that we would be perfect for the job. Here are some of the letters that we sent to him...

Mr Hamlen selected the new prefects from the Year 4 applicants.  We will carry out their duties twice a week unless we are helping in the office.   Each fortnight we do a different duty.

When asked 'What does being a prefect mean to you?' this is how our Perfect Prefects responded:



"Being a prefect makes me feel responsible and makes me feel like an important part of the school."



"Being prefect makes me feel like I have a really big responsibility in the school."



"It's an honour being a prefect!" 



"It encourages me to be responsible and kind. Also, it teaches me that just because it's not my home, it doesn't mean i cannot help." 



I like being a prefect because it makes me feel happy when I'm helpful and gives me different responsibilities."
