Prefects get leadership training
THIS YEAR, the students were in control of the annual prefects’ seminar.
President of the Barbados Association of Principals of Public Secondary Schools, Vere Parris, said the decision had been taken for the prefects to have key roles this time around to give them added life experience as young leaders.
“This year the format is somewhat different as it is being led by the prefects and not the prefect masters. We believe there is a lot to be gained from young leaders of Barbados coming together to exchange ideas, network and learn from others who can inspire them,” he said.
The event included remarks from Parris, the feature address by managing director of the Freemind Institute Errol Griffith and a series of group sessions. (CA)
