On Monday 24 February, Kerikeri High School’s 39 Prefects were introduced amongst a warm and supportive audience in two Celebration Assemblies.
The day was special, historic and exciting as the Prefects were acknowledged as our Student Leaders for 2020.
The assembly began with an incredibly strong welcome from our Kapa Haka Roopu, showing the strength of acknowledgement for these Leaders.
Being selected as a Prefect is a huge achievement at Kerikeri High School. The responsibility of being a Prefect is a privilege and an enriching experience, it is a lot more than wearing the badge and the blazer – it is about Leadership with and through Service.
Mrs Forgie described the Prefect process of application through to the panel interview and much like a job application process, unfortunately not every applicant can be selected.
The 2020 Prefect Team attended an intensive two-day Leadership Seminar and a key part of this was about which year level each Prefect would be working with this year.
The 2020 Kerikeri High School Prefects are; Dean Baker, Olivia Bell, Isaiah Bentley-Tsibuah, Luke Bijl, Lucy Blakeman, Clay Byrne, Liam Collins, Minaia Corfield, Noah Crooks, Sovannareach Da, Jacky Edwards, Charlette Gamble, K’Lee Going-Edwards, Samuel Harrell, Oscar Hart, Faith Hohepa, Wilson Hookway, Josela Hovell, Sivan Howe, Todd Jack, Emilie Jones, Jeany Kim, Dacoda King, Chris Lawrence, Henning Le Roux, Emily Lyall, Nicole Manning, Aishlin Murphy, Dominic O’Brien, Cody Pickery, Charlie Potter, Destiny Ritete-Tua, Myer Robb, Alice Taylor, Helen Wasey, Manaia Webb, Leia Weeds, Will Whiu and Anna Yarrall.
To conclude the assembly, the four Head students were acknowledged. These students take on the most weighty responsibility and additional service to school.
Our 2020 Kerikeri High School Head Students are; Deputy Head Boy Isaiah Bently-Tsibuah, Head Girl Anna Yarrall, Mrs Elizabeth Forgie (Principal) Head Boy Will Whiu, Deputy Head Girl Manaia Corfield,
