Does anyone know if there getting to be a prefect in 6th year? Is anyone going to be head girl/boy?

I had my prefect interview a few weeks ago, but no one has been told at our school yet? Hopefully we'll find out when we go back on Tuesday, because I think we'll have to have blazers with the braid sewn on it by Thurday night (9th) at the prize giving!!! - Doesn't leave us very much time!!

Well I'm keeping my fingers crossed! tongue.gif

Well... they basically help to keep the school in working order. lol! Just really help out!
But, as I was told at my interveiw, our Prefect system has changed. Our school whats to involve all the sixth years without making them all prefects, so the prefects at our school this year are like team leaders!

Sounds fun, so I hope I get to be one!! biggrin.gif

Well all of us prefects at our school did nothing at all! We never even did our duties at all! Sumtimes in 5th yr but NEVER in 6th yr, half the time there wasnt even a rota made up! Plus the staff had no more respect for the prefects than all the other idiots!

My school's kinda screwed up the whole Prefect thing for the last year or so, so i haven't got a clue what's gonna happen with it. Last year every 6th year automatically became a prefect, but i don't know if that's gonna happen this year or if they're going back to selecting the "best" people. Guess it all depends on numbers.

&no clue who's gonna be Head Boy or Girl either. Again, last year they changed the way they were selected & decided 6th years should vote for who they wanted. Basically it's now become one huge popularity contest. Ug.

It’s not that I literally think I’m a faerie. It’s just that I feel so different from most people. And this idea of a race living underground in caverns, spending all their days dancing and playing the fiddle and eating flowers and reciting poetry and sharing their dreams, that to me sounds much more real than the way people live in this world, hating and fighting and wanting and hurting. - FLB


Imagine that I can't be comforted at all , in pieces I went from crawling into a ball. Evidence, it's in my breathing every day, less and less and less. Can you hear me now, cause I'm not doing fine, I'm drowning in my mind again - LisaMariePresley

Our school the majority of S6 become Prefects. To become a prefect you must have a good attendance rate, good punctuality and good behaviour in the school.

Head boy and Girl in our school are called Boy Captain and Girl Captain. This is done as an election between the staff and S6. People nominate themselves. It gets down to 5 boys and 5 girls. Each person gets three votes (Captain and 2 vice captains). The boy with the most votes becomes captain and the 2 people who come second become vice captains and the same happens for the Girls.

Perosnally I'm not going to go for a captain as they get too much extra work to do. They have to organise all the social events for S6 as well as a number of other things around the school.

Prefects get it easy. They just have to take the please takes (class cover) round, the Bullet In (informatin sheet with attendance) round and do the afternoon attendnce period 5 if they are not in class.

I'm gonna be a prefect... I've still to go for the interview but practically everybody gets in. There's no way I'll be head boy though.

At my school the guidance staff put forward people who are automatically made prefects at the start of 5th year and then continue on to become Senior prefects in 6th year so to me being a prefect isn't all that big a deal since there are about 100 at my school of 1000

At my school its basically a popularity contest!
The 5th years put down 10 names of people and then with this and the help of teachers nominations they are chosen - the same goes for 6th year!
once you are a prefect you stay one!
no need to be smart or good at things - just need to have a parent as a teacher at the school or your family is well known.

in total there are about 20 5th years out of 100 5th year pupils and 30 6th year pupils out of 85

Our school is very annoying and has favourite pupils and families
probably because they are an independent school so not part of glasgow city council- and think they are better unsure.gif
but also because they want to pretend they are a private school
