The Hindsbury Primary School recently installed 32 prefects.

From an enrolment of 366 at the all-girls school, this group of young leaders, along with their teachers, will be promoting high standards and discipline at the school.

​After receiving their badges, the new prefects pledged before their principal, teachers, parents and well-wishers to “honour and uphold the school rules” and assist teachers in developing and maintaining discipline amongst the pupils.

Corporate communications administrator with the Barbados Light & Power Company, Jackie Marshall-Clarke, was the keynote speaker and encouraged the children to strive every day to be at their best.

With the theme Pushing The Boundaries Of Excellence, Marshall-Clarke said good habits and a positive attitude were major drivers in achieving excellence.

“Actions become habits and excellence emerges as a result of your actions performed well and consistently over time,” she said.

Principal of the school Nola Cummings-Lewis congratulated the parents first of all on the achievement of their children.

​“The good work and good habits being recognised today must have started at home.

​“We support this and ask that parents continue to work with their children to develop habits that will shape their future,” she said.

Included in the young leadership team, were head girl, Makayla Carrington and deputy head girl, Kianna Mason.

Along with the other prefects, their responsibilities will include assisting with lunch-time supervision and becoming a “big sister” to other students. (PR)
