Each year the students and staff elect a Prefect Team to shape the vision of Elizabeth College and promote a friendly, open culture around the school. Prefects become highly visible role models for all the students in the school and represent Elizabeth College a various functions throughout the year.
The Prefects’ main duty is to maintain an atmosphere of friendly co-operation, discipline and unity in the school. They are expected to model the school values and are trusted and respected. They play an integral role in representing the student body and are excellent ambassadors for the school.
The Senior Prefect is supported by four Second Senior Prefects, and then further Prefects responsible for certain aspects of day-to-day life at Elizabeth College. The school is enormously proud of its Prefect Team and all they for for the school.
I’m Oliver Connolly, and I am your Senior Prefect for this academic year. I study maths, physics, and history, and I love to climb and play badminton. This year - as a senior prefect team - will be focusing on cohesion - the inclusivity and harmony of the College community, where everyone feels comfortable and enthusiastic to enter the College campus every morning.
As the Senior Prefect, I will be in charge of achieving this goal, and so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas they would like to share, please come and talk to me. Furthermore, in my role of Senior Prefect I am also the voice of the student body, meaning that it’s my responsibility to represent all of the students and make their voices heard. I do this by having regular meetings with the Principal, and sitting in on the School Council.
I will also lead the senior prefect team and the prefects as a whole to encourage them to act in accordance to our vision, and try to implement the vision we are all so passionate about.
