What does your role entail?
As a Sports Captain, my role is not only to promote the participation of sports throughout all parts of school, but to build on the pride of being a lion.
What was the most stressful part of the Prefect application process and why?
To me, the most stressful part of the application process was the interview. As the interview is a place where you have to think fast on your feet in order to succeed and you have to be able to say everything you want to in a short time span.
What is the most common misconception people have about the prefects?
That prefects can change whatever they want in school.
Why did you want to be a prefect?
I wanted to be a prefect as I wanted to give back to a community that gave so much to me.
What would you say to your 12-year-old self?
‘Don’t worry, you’ll make it.’
How does your Prefect role link to your future career?
I hope to be able to, with time, work and reach a high level of responsibility in whatever job I do, and being a Prefect shows me what this level of responsibility entails.
What was the hardest question they asked you in your interview?
‘What three things don’t you like about the school?’
What have the last few months as a Prefect taught you?
Being a Prefect taught me how important it is to have important responsibilities and having to be mature enough to live up to the expectations of being a Prefect.
What is one thing you want to change in school?
I wish that I could increase school spirit and increase the pride of being a lion in, not only all of our sport teams but also all types of sports around school. Being able to represent a school such as St.Paul’s is an honour, and I hope to be able to spread the feeling of deep satisfaction and accomplishment.
Any advice for prospective prefects?
Do it. Don’t be scared of getting things done and go after what you want you believe you can change in school in order to make this community a better place.
