Work, play, and rest appropriate to the ages of the boarders, are part of family life. The boarding family works together in keeping the boarding home clean and neat, plays together in planned and impromptu activities, and shares in spiritual and emotional development through opportunities provided in daily living. All residents are expected to treat each other with the respect, acceptance, and compassion characteristic of a Christ-centered home.
Prefects are elected by the faculty and dorm parents to reside in underform (third through fifth form) dormitories. A prefect serves as assistant dorm parent and older brother or sister to the students on his or her hall. These leaders have the responsibility of keeping order as well as advising and assisting younger students in dealing with school life. Below is the list of current elected Sedaven Girls dormitory Prefects. See further below what are some of the Prefects responsibilities.
