On a cold Thursday afternoon when they told us to rush and wear our prefects’ uniform and since it had started drizzling, we stayed in our dormitories some time before we went to the staffroom to rehearse the oath. In about an hour’s time, we were called to join the assembly which had already started with the rest of the school. Immediately we joined the assembly, and the ceremony started. There were a few speeches before they started calling people to swear in. When my post was finally called, I celebrated in my heart because I knew I was officially a prefect. The school had prepared a special meal for us and there was also a cake to be cut.
