Prefects


“This is the time most of you have been waiting for” Mr Burt announced proudly. The whole hall fell silent. My heart was racing, while I was secretly hoping I would go up. He held a piece of paper in his hand. “ I would just like to say how proud I am of these people”. Then he read out the first name of the first prefect: Selena Hafoka. I stood up and a loud thunder of people clapping filled my ears. I felt like crying to be honest. Walking down the aisle, my legs were wobbling. I was greeted by Mrs Nua’s kind eyes, when she handed me my badge. Creaking was the noise that I heard when I made my way up the stairs. As I stared into the crowd, I saw my friends, Toreka, Sylvia and Seini-Mino making their way here to join me. Boys were soon announced, and they were: Joshua, Miracle, samson and Joe.  I couldn't believe that I was standing here, with 7 other people that were like me and were announced as Prefects. We were all waiting for this moment, because a term had passed and we were eagerly awaiting for the results and see who would come out on top. Why had we waited so long? Well because the teachers were waiting for the leaders to emerge, and apparently we were the people who stood out and they thought that now was the time to let us know. 



The first few weeks of being Prefect felt normal until all these responsibilities came popping up out of the blue. We needed to plan activities for the school but we also had to keep on top of our school work too which is tough especially if you have to juggle all of these at the same time. I didn't expect this much work, but I also didn't expect to just sit around and wait for things to happen, so I like being Prefect because it's a challenge, and challenges make you a stronger person.

  2. Hi Selena,
    Well done, that is an amazing post you have done. I like the clever vocabulary you used and I also like how you described the scene, it actually feels like I was there to be honest.
    I understand you when you say, We needed to plan activities for the school but we also had to keep on top of our school work too which is tough especially if you have to juggle all of these at the same time. Its very difficult to do those things. A job well done!

  3. Hi Selena

    Congratulations on your appointment as a School Prefect. You were an obvious choice because you are not only super clever, but you are also responsible, hard-working and kind. These are attributes that make people like you stand out among the rest. I'm only kicking myself because I was away that day. Anyway, CONGRATULATIONS! You deserve it!
