Secondary School Prefects
The IBSB Senior School Prefects play an important role in helping to support both students and teachers in maintaining vibrant life on an around the school campus. Prefects assist new students in their adjustment to life at IBSB; they act as liaisons between students and faculty; they act as ambassadors of the school touring parents around the campus and special events; they are academic mentors for students needing extra help; they are student mentors for students needing extra support or maybe a friend to help them through a difficult time; they monitor the school to ensure that bullying does not take place; and they help the teachers run the school in many areas.
Each Prefect is assigned both a Primary and Senior class to support, which they visit on a regular basis to get to know the students, and in addition to this they also have specific duties, such as being the Editor of TIV, or the Year book, or Science Prefect, or Music Prefect, Lunchroom Prefect, etc. As a part of their function they have fortnightly meetings to discuss the problems that they see arising in the school and then work together as a team to solve these problems. Through regular meetings with the Head of Secondary they also help plan social and educational activities for the school. In this way they function as an integral extension of the faculty and administration.
Prefect selection is open to all Sixth Form Students and is based on academic performance, character, behaviour, and attendance. Students need to have attended IBSB for a minimum of 2 years to apply for a Senior Prefect position.
Primary School Prefects
Being given the title and position of Prefect is an honour and a privilege offered to the best, brightest, most talented students in Year 6 willing and able to take on the responsibility. Prefects are required to take on extra duties in addition to their normal studies and extracurricular activities and expected to behave in an exemplary manner at all times, setting the standard by which the other students measure themselves.
Primary School Prefects play a crucial role in ensuring the ethos of the school carries across to all areas of school life. They treat all students equally and fairly and work to ensure that the students are cared for and supported. It is important for Primary Prefects to listen to students and to offer help and advice when needed. There may be new students who feel alone or left out and in this situation Primary Prefects take a lead role in making these students feel welcome and included in life and IBSB. In many ways Primary Prefects play a big brother or sister role and look at the student body as an extended family. There should be no favouritism or prejudice; at all times Primary Prefects should appear friendly, approachable, fair and just. In essence, being a Primary School Prefect means representing IBSB in the best way possible and caring for the wellbeing of the students. So, the more a Primary Prefect thinks of others, the better they are fulfilling their role as a Primary School Prefect.

Hello, my name is Luiza, and this year I will be one of the Senior School Events Prefects. I joined IBSB in 2007 and have always thought it would be a great honour to be a Senior School Prefect and s, therefore very happy to have been offered this chance to give back to the school community. This year, in addition to my Year 12 studies, I will be busy helping to organise the traditional IBSB events, such as the Winter and Valentine’s Balls, and hope to come up with some new ones for you to enjoy and participate in- stay tuned. I will also be a mentor for both the Preschool and Year 2 children, so if you see me buzzing around the main campus, feel free to come up and say hi, or share some ideas and chat about your life at IBSB.
I have been a part of the IBSB community for 9 years and now I finally have the privilege of being the school’s Science Prefect! I will also be mentoring one of the year 7 groups and year 9. As the Science Prefect, I believe it is my duty to inspire my colleagues and help them with their journey through the wonders of the scientific world. I will also be taking care of the lab; helping prepare for experiments to be carried out in a safe environment. One of my responsibilities will be I will be planning the Science Fair this year; I am really looking forward to seeing the many projects that will be part of the event!
