New school prefects make their pledge

Back to school 2018

There is always much excitement at the start of the new school year. At the beginning of term assembly, lead by the Head, new pupils are welcomed to the Clayesmore family, and existing pupils welcomed back. The start of the new school year also sees the formal process of the appointing of the year’s school leaders.

This morning Clayesmore’s Head, Mrs Thomson, formally commissioned the year’s Heads of School, Heads of House, and Prefects. Each of them received their prefects badge from her, before being charged to carry out their duties, meeting high personal standards and help all members of the school community. They lined up and took their pledge in front of the school, before the prefects’ prayer rounded off their formal induction into their new roles. 

The assembly was a great opportunity to reflect on the successes of the last academic year, and to look forward to another exciting year at Clayesmore, with the Head’s closing words challenging all those present to work towards developing the habit of excellence in the terms to come.
