Berkeley names head boy and head girl
The Berkeley Institute has selected its head boy, head girl and their deputies.
Andreaz Glasgow, was selected as head boy and Daria Symonds as head girl.
Seth Hardtman and Zayne Sinclair are the deputy head boys and Gabrielle Romaine and Raina Defontes are the deputy head girls.
Andreaz said: “I am elated to have been given this position. I have worked hard for it for the past four years during my tenure at the Berkeley Institute.
“I am excited to take on this role feet first, and gung-ho like our founding fathers were when they formed this institution.
“Despite the challenges of Covid-19, I look forward to bettering my school, community and peers by spreading the Berkeley spirit as it’s not about how you start but about how you finish.”
Daria added: “Despite the challenges of Covid-19, the students are making the best of their senior year and time at the Berkeley Institute.”
The six S4 pupils, who will leave next year, were honoured at a virtual school assembly on Zoom on October 15 after months of discussion and interviews.
Quincy Paynter, the deputy principal, who was chairman of the prefect selection committee, said: “We were a bit worried about how we were going to go about selecting prefects this year.
“We usually have a full school year before to handle all the tedious tasks and get time to observe all the candidates.
“Luckily, we had a great administrative team and committee members who are dedicated to producing nothing but the best.”
