The prefects in St. Mary’s this year have been very involved in the school community. As well as taking care of our first and second year classes, we have also organised many activities throughout the school. These have included the homework club, the lunchtime computer club and playing fun games with first years during Maths Week. The Homework Club takes place Wednesdays and Thursdays and prefects help first and second year students with their homework. During the school mass at the start of the year all prefects were officially inaugurated.

At Halloween this year, for a bit of banter, we organised a dress up day for the whole school community. This took place on the 25th of October. In the morning all prefects went around the classes and collected two euro from all students to raise money for Barnardos and the Holy Faith Mission to Sudan.

Sixth years took it to another level with costumes such as Colgate toothpaste, a giant cupcake, Statue of Liberty and an old married couple. First year prefects organised a table quiz and party while second year prefects had parties with their classes. This was a fun filled day where prefects took charge of the event and raised €915.

On Friday, 9th November, we met with Sr. Vivienne, Head of the Holy Faith Order, to give her a cheque for five hundred euro. It’s a great honour to be a prefect in St. Mary’s. One of the privileges is that you get to help first years settle into the school and share with them the “dos and don’ts” in St. Mary’s but really it’s all about the fabulous badge!
