Why We Have School Prefects at Sacred Heart
As part of our citizenship education, we believe that children need to experience duties and responsibilities that come with being a member of a community in order to help them prepare to play an active role as citizens.
At Sacred Heart we believe that prefects have a very important role to play in the day to day organisation of our school and as only Year Six pupils are allowed this position, it is considered to be very prestigious. The position not only allows the Year Six pupils to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility, it also enables the younger children to learn from a good example.
The prefect badge will be expected be worn every day. Prefects are expected to take full responsibility for their badge and not lose it through carelessness.
