I got house Prefect! I am so thrilled. I finally feel happy, and believe this will be a positive thing for me. It was terrifying though. They called everyone who had gotten interviews for prefects into the hall, and the Principle went on this long ramble about leadership which we've all heard a thousand times. The whole time I was just thinking "hurry up and just read the goddam list!" I was so anxious and nervous. my hands were shaking and I felt like I was going to throw up. Finally she read out the list, and I was roughly halfway down. Considering I only applied for one prefect I knew I got House. Then later in the day we had an assembly in which the titles of the prefects were read out, so I had to go up on stage and hug this years house prefect etc., etc. I am actually over the moon now.

So two weeks ago I applied for a Prefect role at my school. Next year is my last year of college education (High School), and prefect roles are offered to girls in their final year. So I applied for a role, not expecting much, but to my delight I received a call saying that I had an interview for the Prefect I applied for. So I went for my interview, and the teachers asked me questions such as: Why are applying for the role? What can you bring to the role? What are your strengths and weaknesses? They said I gave good answers and that the interview had a 'flow'. I'm trying not to get my hopes up in case I don't get it, but I can't help wondering. I'm excited at the possibility that I may be able to influence younger girls in a positive way. I find out next Wednesday if I have it or not, so I'll keep you posted.
