SOHAM GRAMMAR SCHOOL
The Prefects' Charter
Understanding as I do that he who is to command must first learn to obey I will loyally keep the rules of the school, both those that are written and those that are unwritten.
I will strive at all times, both in school and out, to set an example to other boys by my conduct and deportment.
I realise that the office of prefect, besides carrying privileges also entails responsibilities. I will try never to abuse the privileges or lower the dignity of my office and I will strive to be mindful of its duties and responsibilities.
In my jurisdiction over other boys I will strive always to be just; I will be cheerful without courting popularity and I will remember that justice should at times be tempered with mercy.
