Nadi Special School students, teachers and parents were overjoyed as 20 students were inducted as school prefects on Friday, February 14.
The induction was a collective effort of both the teachers and parents in terms of providing support for the students and encouraging a feeling of participation and inclusion by providing them with the opportunity to lead firsthand.
“Apart from the prefects we also have the environment officers; they look at the cleanliness of the compound and class. So there are two parts of it which are class prefects who help the teachers in supervising the students and then we have the environmental officers looking after the environment of the class and school,” said head teacher Shiromani Felix.
According to Mr. Felix badges used for the prefects’ induction are made by the school as the placing of students photos on the badges gives students a sense of pride.
