Fulford Academy's Student Leadership Program
Prefects are students who wish to be leaders within Fulford Academy. Prefects are students who are hard working, outgoing, and demonstrate leadership skills. Fulford Academy Prefects will be held to a higher standard then other students, and used as a role model for all others in the school. There are several levels of Prefects; Junior Prefects and House Prefects. Each position has additional responsibilities within the school, but also additional privileges.
Each of the six Fulford Houses will have two Spirit Leaders, who will be responsible for promoting unity, and house spirit within each house. A Spirit Leader will be a positive, enthusiastic role model for their peers during house activities throughout the year.
