Yat Sen Primary School head prefects hope to bring a change in the school.

A total of 46 prefects including the head boy, head girl, their deputies, school prefects, class monitors and environment leaders were inducted on Monday at the school hall in Flagstaff, Suva.

Head girl, Petra Fong said she was surprised and proud to take up her new role.

“The last time I was badged was in Year Six when I became the class captain. Being inducted the head girl is a big surprise,” she said.

“I honestly thought it would be someone else.

“I’m not sure how I will balance my studies and the leadership role, but with the help of my parents I will be able to do it.”

Petra, who aspires to become a marine biologist, wants to bring a change in the school’s environment.

“As a leader, I want to show everyone that if I can change the world in my own ways, then everyone can in their own ways as well,” she said.

“I love the environment and I would like to change the way students throw rubbish irresponsibly.”

She dedicated her achievement to her parents and teachers.

School head boy, Royal Zhan shared similar sentiments.

“Becoming a head boy is new to me because I have been a lonely person in school,” he said.

“I have been a quiet student and this is the first time for me to become a leader.”

Royal said he wanted to bring a change in the school rules.

“I want the students to obey the rules. The head girl and I have been thinking about the new rules in this school which we will talk to the head teacher about and get her advice,” he said.

Head teacher, Manjila Singh, said despite the challenging academic year, she had high expectations from its student leaders.

“The Year Eight students are sitting their exams, but we still expect them to help the teachers and myself with supervision and the whole of the school community.

“Discipline in general is a challenge for everybody so we are looking forward to the leaders to help us instill discipline,” the head teacher said.

“We are targeting 100 per cent pass for Year Eight external exams.”
