Dream Team: Congratulations Prefects on your Appointment to the Senior roles in school
It was a very difficult process to appoint both Head Boy and Head Girl as all candidates were outstanding in every part of the interview process. I am delighted and proud that Brandon has been appointed as Head Boy and that India has been appointed Head Girl. The Deputies and Assistants are a quality team for the Head Boy and Girl to work with and the Deputy Team consists of Amelia and Edlin; Assistants: Alice and James. They have already, along with the Prefect Body, set the highest standards around school. Their speeches delivered at the July Presentation Awards Evening in front of a hall of 300 were excellent. They are a credit to St Mary's.
The Head Boy and Girl of the school are responsible for managing the whole of the Prefect Body, ensuring that all duties are carried out correctly and that the Prefect Body are the ultimate role models for all other pupils in the school. Duties of the Senior Team will consist of representing the school at local and national events; making speeches at Open Evenings and Awards events and they are an integral part of the induction process for the new Year 7s in September. The Head Boy and Girl are key to all major events that the school is involved in such as organising Open Evenings and Parents Evening.
The selection process for all candidates who applied was very thorough. This year the quality and leadership shown by all candidates was exceptional and it was a privilege to be part of this process. All candidates submitted a letter of application and presented before key staff. Students were finally short-listed and voted for by staff members.
