Honiton Community College has elected a new team of prefects.
The students underwent a gruelling process to be elected and win their well-deserved tie, badge and new status.
They each have different roles within college and will be involved in various activities throughout the next 12 months.
They will also each have a project of their own choice to complete – such as setting up a wellbeing drop-in centre for fellow students - which will be announced once these have been decided.
Hannah Bown, head of PE and head of life skills at the college, told the Herald: “With the exam season almost on us for our year 11 students, it was time for our year 11 prefects to hand over their responsibilities to a new group of year 10 students.
“Thirty-one applications later, and a gruelling interview process, the six new prefects were recruited from year 10.
“We would like to say a fond farewell and a huge thank-you to our current year 11 prefects. These were Amberina Askew, Ashley Mitchell, Charles Finney, Charlie Davies, Lauren Gavin, Rebecca Spence and Will Lancaster.
The new prefects who have been selected to take over their duties are: Flo White and Rhys Phillips (sports prefects), Tom Lilley and Amelie Leach (well-being prefects), Natasha Pavey (academic prefect), Faye Macklin (transition prefect), Anna Marchewska (transitional support prefect, a new role).
