College Prefect Team 2021 Commissioned

February 03, 2021 at 2:12 PM

In a change of format this year, the 2021 prefect team, along with their family members, were invited to a formal commissioning held in the Chapel on the first evening of the new school year. The evening service ensured that proud parents could be in attendance for the service, followed by supper in the Goodfellow Centre. On a glorious summer evening, this was a joyous family occasion.

This year, we congratulate J’adore Harris-Tavita and Harry Lowe, whose leadership skills, hard work and pride in the College have seen them appointed as Head Prefects for 2021. J’adore and Harry have committed themselves fully to their academic, co-curricular and service endeavours during their college years, both demonstrating their potential to fulfil the Saint Kentigern Vision to ‘Lead and Serve with Distinction.’

J’adore and Harry will be supported by Sophia Hynds and Harjot Dharni, who have been appointed as Deputy Head Prefects, as well as an extended team that includes Academic, Chapel, Art, Te Amokura, Service, Sport Prefects, House Leaders and Bruce House Prefects.

The selection of prefect roles is a lengthy process and students who are selected are often ‘all-rounders’ who have taken advantage of the many opportunities that Saint Kentigern has to offer. In commissioning the prefects Chaplain, Reverend Smith read the pledge to be signed:

‘We agree to be leaders and role models for our peers and younger students by showing respect, integrity, service, excellence and love in all areas of life for the Glory of God and service of others.
We are committed to leading our school to give life to our Mission: ‘To provide education which inspires students to strive for excellence in all areas of life for the Glory of God and service of others.’

The prefects had a chance to strengthen their bonds at a camp prior to the start of term and are now ready to face the challenges ahead. In addressing their peers, J’adore and Harry said, ‘Saint Kentigern College is and has always been ‘a world of opportunity’ for each and every one of us, and this opportunity, as a leader of our school, might be our biggest yet. We now have a voice, and if we all use it together, to encourage and amplify not only the rest of the voices of our school, but to influence a better culture, a better community, then we’re proud to say that the future of Saint Kentigern College is in very promising hands.’

Congratulations to all the students who have been appointed as Prefects for 2021!

HEAD GIRL: J’ADORE HARRIS-TAVITA
J’adore joined the Saint Kentigern family in Year 7 at the Girls’ School where she went on to become their Head Girl in her final year. Joining the College in Year 9, she has made the most of the opportunities offered, and her strong work ethic and dedication to do her best has seen her achieve at the highest level in both academics and sports. She was awarded Academic Honours in Year 12 and is currently working towards her International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Outside the classroom, J’adore is actively involved in the Arts, and Premier Netball and Touch teams, as well as being a valued member of the Cultural Group. 

J’adore is a kind and considerate young woman and her natural leadership qualities make her approachable and highly respected amongst students and staff. She a true Daughter of Kentigern, demonstrated through her servant leadership, integrity and humility. She is well-deserving of her selection as Head Girl.

HEAD BOY: HARRY LOWE
Harry joined the Saint Kentigern family in Year 7 and quickly proved he is a conscientious hard-working student. Both confident and self-motivated, he is always ready to rise to a new challenge. Academically, he has achieved NCEA Level 1 and 2 with Excellent endorsements and is now working towards his Level 3 qualification.

Outside the classroom, Harry has been involved in cricket (coaching and playing) and is a member of the 1st XI Football team. He has a passion for music, plays the guitar and is an excellent vocalist, having played in the Hamilton House Rock Band. He has been a finalist and a winner of SKC’s Got Talent.

Harry developed his leadership experience through his position as a Middle School Leader and captaining Cricket teams. Offering service, he has been a participant in the World Vision 40 Hour Famine and completed his Bronze Duke of Edinburgh.

Harry is a true Son of Kentigern, demonstrated through his caring attitude, his humility, integrity and servant leadership. He is well-deserving of his selection as Head of Boy.

DEPUTY HEAD PREFECTS: SOPHIA HYNDS & HARJOT DHARNI
J’adore and Harry will benefit from the support of two strong Deputy Head Prefects. Sophie Hynds and Harjot Dharni are both mature and responsible students who live by our Saint Kentigern Values and strive to do their best in all areas of the College life. Sophie enjoys netball and rowing and is working towards completing her Duke of Edinburgh Gold award. Harjot is an active public speaker, a member of the debating team, and he enjoys playing cricket and football. They are both responsible and mature senior students who are driven to do their best and are well-deserving of their selection.
