THIS TIME EVERY YEAR, THE HEAD OF CHRIST COLLEGE, MRS EMMA TAYLOR, ANNOUNCES HER NEW TEAM OF PREFECTS FOR THE NEXT ACADEMIC YEAR.
As the half term holidays were about to start, pupils gathered together for their assembly before heading off to the athletics track for Sports Day.
During assembly, the Head was delighted to announce the school prefect team for next year. These pupils have been nominated by staff and pupils and chosen after discussion with this year’s prefects, houseparents and senior staff. Prefects are chosen to do a job; they work hard at their weekly duties and specific responsibilities. They are also chosen because they are excellent role models who have the ability to motivate and lead the school, and to keep that going over a whole academic year. But equally important, they are a team. Their appointment is not all about individual achievement; it is not the same as gaining school colours or winning a prize. They are appointed to be part of a group who will build confidence in one another and work together to ensure that the school runs efficiently and that they make their mark at the top of the school over the coming year, making things better for every pupil with their ideas and their efforts as a group. Specific responsibilities in the school and in houses will be announced near the end of term, but the team is as follows:
Tom Ashton, Amy Baker, Peter Bishop, Julia Copp, Bea Hayes, Tom Jenkins, Tom Kiss, Rhianna Lewis, Alice Lilley, Catie Masters, Harrison Mills, Nadia Pettit, Shupal Shrestha, Anissa Tang, Aisling Tarpey, Milo Welch.
