As Head Prefect and Deputy Head Prefect they will lead, motivate, influence and encourage an exceptional cohort of boys. As a community we congratulate these young men on their appointment and thank all the students who had the confidence and courage to apply. We are confident that the new Prefects will have what it takes to inspire the boys of our Dominican School in the year ahead, to set a very high standard and hold their course with courage.
I very much look forward to working with each and every one of them in their new leadership roles, and ask them to remember that leadership is based on a spiritual quality; the power to inspire; the power to inspire others to lead. A spirit of leadership invites others to contribute their gifts and talents in order to find new ways. Together we all share the responsibility to shape our dreams and turn those dreams into reality. And that will surely mean learning new ways. So, the challenge for our new Prefects is to be more than just the inheritors of a tradition - they are called to be the creators of our culture, the inventors of traditions; the dreamers of new ways of living out our calling to be children of God.
