We have a wonderful, friendly, supportive school community. Our students and their families are key to shaping our school into the vibrant place it is.

Our Prefects

Leadership is a key component of Springbank’s learning framework. From an early age, students are required to work in teams, developing their interpersonal skills in a variety of social environments (e.g. sports, class projects, community work), and they are regularly exposed to leadership opportunities.

We believe that leadership starts with self-responsibility. Each student is encouraged to practice making the right choice and be responsible for the path they ultimately choose to take throughout life.

Formal leadership recognition at Springbank starts in Junior School and develops through Middle School. Our Senior Leadership Programme is comprehensive, with prefects selected following a formal application process. Students also have responsibility as House Leaders and form tutors of younger classes.

Our seniors encourage, challenge, and support one another to inspire success. Prefects and Senior Leaders regularly represent the school at formal community events (e.g. Anzac Day), act as ambassadors for school visitors, run lunchtime sport and clubs, speak at school assemblies, and plan various school events (e.g. school ball, talent show, drama productions). Seniors also recognise their responsibility to act as role models and mentors for our younger students (e.g. coaching younger sports teams)

Prefect Welcome

As head prefects, this year we are dedicated to creating an inclusive and supportive environment where every student feels valued. We believe in collaboration, and we are enthusiastic to work alongside the prefect team of 2024 to create memorable experiences for all the students.

When working together, the three of us have complimentary attributes and this helps us to work with each other and achieve our goals. Itis this that makes us a strong team of head prefects, with the ability to lead the prefect team.

We have a strong connection with the Springbank staff, students and their families, as we have developed relationships with them over our years at Springbank. We have developed these connections through our many initiatives, which includes Student Volunteer Army, 40-Hour Challenge, Duke of Edinburgh, and Matariki.  These initiatives incorporate our own values as well as the school’s.

We have all been at Springbank School for many years; we appreciate the friendly, and supportive environment and believe it has been crucial part of our upbringing. Springbank’s drive for academic achievement and all-round success has benefited us greatly, and we strongly believe that this has helped us become who we are today, as well as preparing us for our future endeavours.

As this year’s head prefects, we have a collective goal of connecting our students with the wider community and to aid student led initiatives. Additionally, we lead by example by introducing programmes and initiatives that incorporate this goal.  We aim to be exemplary role models in the school with active participation in all school events. We would like to thank all of those who have helped us reach this point in our lives. We look forward to yet another great year and what it will bring.
