Fifty-eight prefects of St Mary’s Primary School were inducted yesterday.

While addressing the students the school’s former headteacher, Vereniki Rusaqoli, reminded the new leaders that their status as a student remains even though they have taken up the leadership role.

Mr Rusaqoli said they would need to be good listeners to help identify the needs of the students they led.

He said good leaders were tolerant of ambiguity and remained calm, composed and steadfast to the main purpose and kept a cool head. This he said could be achieved through humility.

“Be considerate of the welfare of every child so that no one is discriminated against,” he said.

“Do have a kind heart full of God’s love caring for those in need and treat everyone equally and be friends with all.”

He congratulated all 58 prefects.

“Taking up this role has become even challenging in view of changes happening around us,” he said.

“Changing behaviour and attitudes will challenge your leadership roles as you become ears and eyes for the teachers in your classroom or the whole community.

“Your assistance in supervision will be improved if you maintain an open line of communication with your superiors.”

There were 42 class prefects for the whole stream of the school.
