Kumaran, Reddy To Uphold Duty

The Year 13 students Sweta Kumaran and Ravendra Reddy are looking forward to take on their new role as head prefects.

They were inducted yesterday as headgirl and headboy of Ba Sangam College at the school yesterday. Forty-eight prefects were inducted by chief guest and Minister for Local Government, Housing and Environment, Praveen Kumar.

Kumaran said she was happy with her appointment.

“Being the first member in my family to be appointed as headgirl of a prestigious school is truly a blessing,” she said.

“It will not be easy but we are confident of making it a positive year for us.”

The 17-year-old Navatu native said she was inspired by her former head prefects and her appointment this year was a dream come true.

“Now that I have achieved it words can’t describe how happy I am.”

Headboy Ravendra Reddy intends to fulfil his duties.

“I have always been inspired by my parents with their struggle of supporting my education and they are very proud with my appointment,” he said.

“I am prepared to take on my role as the head boy of the school and will to the best of my ability assist any who will be in need.”

Ravendra said his biggest challenge would be the new students.

“It is the new students that we are more concerned off because we will need them to oblige with the school rules, prayers and extra. All in all we look forward to successful year,” he said.

Minister Kumar reminded the new prefects on the importance of their duties and to be fair to everyone.

“To be a good leader you must first learn to serve; to our leaders of tomorrow who are present here today you hold a sacred and honoured duty to lead your school,” the minister said.

“You must be motivated and fair to also uphold the trust that has been put in you by your teachers and peers.”

The prefects were also told to be independent and hard working.
