    I believe that I have become a good leader as I have progressed throughout secondary school, but I have no idea how to express the importance of these skills on paper Any help would really be appreciated

    Why the hell do you want to be a prefect. It does absolutely NOTHING for you. It will not help you in any way, shape or form.
    However if you must be a prefect, talk about skills that you have gained to become a good leader, confidence, effective communication for example, and some other BS like that, that the teachers will not even read anyway and probably already choose who they want to be prefects by who they like the most.

    idk the idea of being it just really interests me - at our school they get to do quite a lot of fun things for the younger years etc.I'm not doing it for my personal statement or anything, just because it's fun lmao.Thanks Our prefect roles are really competitive so our applications do get checked properly.

    Fair enough if you actually like it, it will obviously be worth it. Maybe it's more worthwhile at your school than it ever was at mine.
