Prefects' Investiture 2017
On 25th January 2017, we welcomed a new batch of prefects to our Student Leadership fraternity. As we celebrated their appointment as prefects of our school, they were reminded of the meaning of leadership from a quote by Jim Fargo, “Leadership is service, not position.”
In his speech, Mr Michel Saw introduced Robert K. Greenleaf's term 'Servant Leadership'-
“The servant leader is servant first. It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. The best test is: Do those served grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, more likely themselves to become servants? And, what is the effect on the least privileged in society? Will they benefit or at least not be further deprived?”
This concept of servant leadership focuses on the fact that a leader must always begin with others in mind, and is closely related to some of the MICE-E principles.
Welcome onboard prefects! We believe that all
Edgefielders can be counted on to do the right thing and touch lives.
