New prefect council at Berkeley

Student leaders at Berkeley Institute have been given an enhanced opportunity to promote academic excellence at the school thanks to the formation of a new prefect council.

The council encourages the promotion of the school's core values regarding academic excellence, student conduct, leadership, and development by reinforcing positive behaviour among peers.

It is led by the school's six head students and five council officers.

The prefect council, is engaged in leadership training and mentoring, and will provide leadership and supervision to all prefects.

It aims to reward positive behaviour through a merit system and to monitor detentions for selected minor infractions.

These student leaders will also formulate and execute special projects to promote the core values and mission of Berkeley Institute.

To date, members of the prefect council have initiated a kindness campaign, plan to provide tutorial support to their peers and are developing a “fun week of academic activities”.

The council is supervised by the principal and faculty members of the school's leadership committee.

It comprises the following exceptional students: Kimika Jackson (head girl); Nia Dailey (deputy head girl); Dejanee Hill-Edwards (deputy head girl); Tori Cariah (prefect council officer); Amali Smith (prefect council officer); Imani Smith (prefect council officer); Azende Furbert (head boy); Kyrsten Burrows (deputy head boy); Ayo Salawu (deputy head boy); Amari Ebbin (prefect council officer); Chioke McGhie-Raynor (prefect council officer).
