SJI Prefectorial Board
Boys with strong leadership potential and service aptitudes are provided with an opportunity to serve on the SJI Prefectorial Board. SJI places a strong emphasis on character development, leadership and communication.
Boys on the SJI Prefectorial Board usually stand out from other Josephians even in Secondary 1, be it in their concern for others, or as boys with initiative who can take to leadership easily.
These Probationary Prefects are mentored by their seniors to prepare them to take on their future roles and responsibilities. These boys are nominated by their peers, teachers and staff who interact with them on a daily basis. Every year, a new batch of Prefects is presented to the school during Inaugural Service in SJI.
In Secondary 3, they are promoted to Senior Prefects, a role all Josephians take with pride and a commitment to uphold the school’s Lasallian values. Outstanding Prefects are interviewed by the SJI Leadership Team before selection to serve in the Prefect EXCO.
The Prefect’s main duty is service to the school, to ensure the daily smooth running of the school. Be it Morning Assembly, Traffic, or maintaining order during Recess. Prefects are on duty for every major function in school as well. In addition, the Prefectorial Board initiates Hair for Hope every year in SJI since 2008. And in 2010, the Prefectorial Board spearheaded the organisation of SJI first Carnival in decades.
