Benji Ward

Head Prefect’s Prize and Ormsby Memorial Medal The boys recognised Benji’s integrity, people skills and mana when they supported him for the position of Head Prefect. He has lived up to their expectations. He is a natural leader of people and has carried out his duties as Head Prefect with integrity, dedication and prudence. He is grounded, humble, cheerful, optimistic, kind and sensible. His advice to the boys at Assembly was always realistic, delivered with a nice wry sense of humour, but also inspiring in an understated way. He was an excellent role model to the boys as a House leader in Harper, on the sports field and in his cultural activities. In all his school endeavours, we witnessed flair, tenacity, and commitment, but also calm and mindfulness. His leadership was mature and considered. He set a good example not only in his fair treatment of others, but also in his dedication to the highest standards in his school life, which included his commitment to his studies. His example also lay in his support of our school virtues and our belief in an all-round education. Benji, thank you for your service to the school. May you live long and prosper.
