College Prefects Commissioned to Lead with Excellence

February 09, 2023 at 3:22 PM

The annual College prefect commissioning to mark the beginning of the school year is always a special occasion. The newly minted prefects and their families along with staff members gathered in the Chapel on Tuesday evening to mark the moment.

To begin the ceremony, the leadership group were walked into the Chapel with the bagpipes and welcomed with a pōwhiri. New chapel prefect, Catalina Addis, followed this with a scripture reading to remind the congregation that it is Jesus, son of God, that leadership at Saint Kentigern is modelled after. After some short remarks by Principal Damon Emtage, the prefects were presented with their badges and robes. This leadership group are a rather special cohort as they get the honour of being Mr Emtage’s first student leadership team at the College.

Once each of the new prefects had been presented with their robes, the group heard from Head Boy, Harvey Whyte and Head Girl, Kaia Ashmore. With the intention to reignite Saint Kentigern school spirit, Harvey shared with the leadership cohort his hopes to see students and staff alike joyfully involved in all aspects of college life. Kaia shared her gratitude for those who had supported her through her years at Saint Kentigern thus far.

The selection process is thorough to ensure the best group of students is chosen to lead the school in their respective areas. Congratulations to the following students who have been selected and we wish you all the best in your new roles.
