Our Head Prefects play a crucial role in ensuring the well-being and personal growth of your sons while they are on campus. These dedicated individuals serve as trusted mentors, taking on the responsibilities of a parental figure while your son is away from home.

The Head Prefects are responsible for the supervision and care of the students in their respective halls, ensuring a safe and nurturing environment at all times. They work collaboratively with faculty members and the academic coordinator to address the academic needs of each student, providing guidance and support to help them achieve their full potential.

In addition to overseeing study halls and offering academic assistance when needed, the Head Prefects serve as the initial counselors and confidants for our boarding students. They work closely with parents, maintaining open communication and fostering a unified effort in the care and formation of your sons. This collaborative approach ensures that your son’s unique needs and aspirations are understood and supported throughout their journey at Saint Stanislaus.
