As part of our citizenship education, we believe that children need to experience duties and responsibilities that come with being a member of a community in order to help them prepare to play an active role as citizens.
At SWP we believe that Golden Swallows have a very important role to play in the day to day organisation of our school. All pupils are invited to apply for this position, it is considered to be very prestigious. Prefects are, in a sense, members of staff and are expected to take their role seriously.
The position not only allows the Golden Swallows to lead by example and demonstrate their responsibility, it also enables the children to learn from a good example.
Every Golden Swallow has to apply for the job and their applications go through a selection process. The School Council members along with senior members of staff select and appoint for the positions.
Once their application has been successful, Golden swallows are awarded Gold lanyards in a whole school assembly.
