Dear Year10 team,
I am writing this letter in application for the position of Year10 prefect.
I see becoming a prefect as a great way to contribute back to the school for all they have done for me ever since I joined KC. The role of a prefect requires one to be committed, confident, responsible and reliable.
Last year, the school offered me an excellent opportunity to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh scheme which has let me complete my Bronze award and further enrol for the Silver award. I believe this has helped me develop strong leadership skills, commit to a task given and complete it to the best of my ability. Furthermore, I have volunteered in the public library doing my fair share of community service and have been mentoring this years’ Bronze group in preparing for their expedition. Outside of school, I am also committed to advancing my extra-curricular skills. I have been swimming since the age of six and I am currently working towards learning synchronised diving. During my time in Years7-10, I have participated in representing the school in the County Literature Competition two years in a row, read a million words on the accelerated readers programme, achieved a bronze award for getting 200+ achievement points in under two terms and won aspiration awards in various subjects including English, Art, German, Science, Maths and PE.
All the above opportunities have allowed me to gain experience in interacting with a wide range of people and to be committed and confident in what I do. I have always wanted to be a prefect as I feel that it is important for students to have the opportunity to voice their opinion and have some input in improving the school, to make it the best it can be. I believe students have concerns they wish to raise but are too hesitant to do so and I want to be able to bring these suggestions to the table so that students’ opinions can be heard. I hope to do this by being transparent and open-minded with issues and making fair decisions. Students can write down or voice their concerns in tutors. This can then be made a note of and be brought to the table for discussions. Hosting assemblies or interactive sessions that discuss about the development of the school and taking in ideas will help the school have a better understanding of its students and their needs.
After having finished school, I aspire to study medicine in university and specialise in anaesthesiology. The job of an anaesthesiologist requires them to have good communication skills, work under pressure and make quick, accurate decisions. Being a prefect will certainly be an extra responsibility alongside preparations for my GCSEs and knowing myself, I work better under pressure which is just perfect reason why you should select me to be a prefect. ?
