My role in the community

Extracts from this document...


My role in the community Preventing fight outbreaks, leading students into the dining area, making sure that student leave the premises safely and orderly, providing support for all teachers in and around school, these are just some of the responsibilities that prefects at Prestwich Arts College have to take on.
