One of the most rewarding aspects of a teachers’ work is to watch the growth of Year 9 students flourish into superb leaders in Year 13. 

In consultation with staff and students, we select two Head Prefects and two Deputy Head Prefects.

Each School House (Rūaumoko/Tāwhirimātea/Tangaroa/Tāne Mahuta) appoints four students as House Prefects for the year (two boys and two girls), and the Sports Department selects a Code Captain to manage each of the Sporting Codes entering into the regional competition.

One of the opportunities our students will have when they enrol in James Cook High School is to participate in student leadership. We have a great group of prefects for 2022.

Apply to be a student leader

Application process for 2023 coming soon.
