Peter Temby, Zane Drage, Megan Dyson and Damon Severin will lead WA College of Agriculture Narrogin in 2019 as the school’s Year 12 prefects.

The students hail from towns across the region including Dumbleyung, Boddington, Narrogin and Woodanilling, and will be responsible for ensuring a smooth transition into the college for new and returning students.

“At the moment, we’re just trying to listen to all the new students and old students, to listen to all their ideas and input,” Zane said.

“The more we get, the more we can improve the school for ourselves and everyone else.

“Ag school is a lot more involving (than senior high schools), there’s a lot less students and we all get a bigger say. It’s a close-knit community, we’re like a massive family.”

While Year 12 students at WA College of Agriculture Narrogin returned to school on Wednesday last week for the first week of term, the prefects started on Monday.

Principal Stephen Watt said student involvement in decision- making at the college would be increased through the prefect role.

In week six of this term, Year 12 students will embark on a leadership and team-building camp.
