Royal Institute Inter-Branch Prefects’ Headboard Investiture 2021/2022

The role of prefects in the school life

The role of a prefect is an honour that students receive in their school life. They are individuals who are expected to establish and maintain the highest standards of behaviour, attitude and appearance at all times and being a good role model to fellow peers. With the responsibilities they undertake in their role as prefects, they emerge triumphant in the challenges later in life.
