The Prefectorial System


The prefectorial system forms the backbone of life in a public school. The initiative and capabilities of individual students are continuously watched and those with inherent or cultivated leadership qualities are selected to the Prefects’ Council. The students’ affairs are managed by this Council headed by the School Captain and the Head Girl. At the Kul level, the Kul incharges and tutors are assisted by senior students who are selected as Kul Captains and Prefects.

The Prefects’ Council is encouraged to manage their affairs independently, though under the guidance of the staff members. While the School Captain and Head Girl serve as the link between the school authorities and the students’ community, the Kul Captains serve as the link between the Kul incharges and the members of the Kuls’.
