Boys' School Prefect Team
February 13, 2013 at 3:17 PM
On Tuesday 12 February, the new student leaders for Saint Kentigern Boys’ School were commissioned at a special service attended by their parents in the JC Chalmers Hall.
The School is fortunate to have a large number of boys capable of student leadership at the highest level, making it extremely difficult to cast the final choices. The successful candidates must demonstrate a balance of confidence and humility while possessing initiave and having the respect of their peers. This year’s Head Boy, Edward Wilkes and Deputy Head Boy, Roynan Clune are two such boys, along with the rest of their chosen team.
At the commissioning, we welcomed back former Chaplain, Reverend Caleb Hardie to lead the School in prayer. We also welcomed Head of College, Mr Steve Cole and the newly elected College Head Boy, Sam Grant. Mr Cole acknowledged the leadership that new Principal, Mr Peter Cassie has shown within the wider Trust before introducing Sam as ‘a thoroughly decent young man. He cares and thinks of other people, is approachable, respected immensely by his peers and stands on the threshold of a lifetime of service and leadership.’ Sam spoke with great conviction about the nature of leadership and said whilst not all of the Year 8’s could be prefects, they all had the ability to offer leadership to the younger boys in the School.
Edwards and Roynan introduced their prefect team to the School before Mr Cassie came forward to challenge them with the Prefect Pledge: ‘Gentlemen, do you promise to uphold the values and standards of Saint Kentigern School and to serve its students, teachers and parents to the best of your ability and for the glory of God?’
It was a proud group of boys and their parents who concluded the morning by sharing morning tea in the staffroom.
Head Boy: Edward Wilkes
Edward is in his eighth year at Saint Kentigern Boys’ School and has consistently been a hard-working and reliable student. He is well known for his cheerful nature! He truly lives the School values, giving service as a Peer Mediator and receiving the Christian Living Award and the bronze Service Award. Edward blends his academic strengths with cultural ability and sporting prowess. He is fully involved in all aspects of School life and aims to make the top sports teams for cricket and rugby and ultimately make 2013 a most memorable year. Edward plans to be well organised for this responsibility that he has been given.
Deputy Head Boy and Council Chairman: Roynan Clune
Roynan joined the School in Year 7 at the start of 2012 and quickly established himself as an excellent all-round pupil who is diligent and enthusiastic. His representation of the School in a variety of music groups is coupled with commendable work ethic in the classroom and on the sports field. Roynan will lead the School Council very well as he is respected by his peers and has a good sense of humour and great leadership abilities. In 2013 Roynan wants to ensure that the School Council are fully involved in School events and continue to have a valued voice in the School. Roynan will strive to be the best leader he can be and wants to be remembered for his leadership skills.
