College Prefects Commissioned for Leadership

February 09, 2024 at 4:04 PM

With excitement and anticipation, the next generation of dynamic leaders has embraced the opportunity to guide and lead the College into 2024. At the Prefects Commissioning on 5 February, fifty-five Year 13s were awarded their Prefect badges and robes in the presence of students, staff, and family. Together, they pledged to lead with excellence, to serve the school with integrity, love, and with the utmost respect for those around them.

Principal Mr Damon Emtage offered his counsel to the incoming cohort of Prefects, emphasising the importance of servant leadership. “This style of leadership focusses on serving others rather than being focussed on personal gain or power. It involves putting the needs and wellbeing of others first and leading by example.” He challenged the Prefects, reminding them of their responsibility to serve the student body and ensure their experience at the school this year is their priority.

The Head Prefects, Katelyn Quay-Chin and Ricky Shen subsequently shared the type of leaders they aspire to be for the students. Katelyn emphasised her intention to “lead from a place of gratitude and giving back to the community of people who have empowered me so much.” Ricky conveyed his objective to “rely on unity… lead by example… and when times get hard, look out for each other.”

There is a real sense of togetherness in this year’s Prefect group. It is evident from the way they interact with each other that there is clear vision, they are intent on outward focus, and are cohesive in their mission. We look forward to the coming months as they begin to forge ahead with new projects and infuse their vision throughout the school.
