KGS S5/6 Student Leadership Opportunities 2020-21

As we have been in lockdown we haven’t been able to hold our usual selection process for student leadership posts. However, we need young leaders like YOU more than ever to help us get the school up and running again, welcome our new S1 and lead the school forward in the coming session. Selection for the posts will be based on applications and teacher consultation as a form of ‘reference’ as we are unable to conduct the usual interview process at this time.
There are various posts and you can apply for as many as you want. Please read the descriptions below to help you decide. We need prefects, S1 buddies, senior and head prefects as well as house captains. Please apply even though it is holiday time. Applications will close on the 10th August but please apply NOW.
Don’t think you are not a leader or ‘the prefect type’: there is no ‘type’. You are unique and that is why you have so much to give and also to gain from the experience. Training will be given which will also benefit you.

Prefects- help with events when required, represent the school, make the school a safer and welcoming place while involved in the duty rota and show a leadership example at all times.
Senior Prefects- prefects but also run committees such as fundraising, publicity, lunchtime events.
Head Prefects- prefects but also overseeing committees, representing the school at formal events, consulting and reporting to SLT.
House Captains- consult and report to PTsGuidance and help to organise house teams, events, assemblies, contribute to house ethos and publicity.
S1 Buddies- help introduce S1 pupils to the school in transition events and guide them during the first week at KGS and beyond.
