There has been a suggestion that schools should scrap the title of Head boy and Head girl, I imagine this is yet more from the woke members of society in an attempt to make everyone equal, although Lord alone knows why you would want to do that.
Personally when I was at school I never aspired to be Head boy nor even a Prefect as I felt more at home with the naughty boys at the back of the bus, although in my school days being naughty never went much further than a crafty fag round the back of the cricket pavilion.
I was quite happy for those at school who desired to be a Prefect and have the privilege of being in the Prefect’s Common room during break time with the added bonus of being allowed to smoke whilst there but as friends of mine were in there I just joined them anyway which gave me all the perks but none of the responsibility.
During my time at school the Prefects were allowed to cane other boys although I have little recollection of the punishment being administered, this of course may have been because of my exemplary good behaviour.
Should they abolish the titles of Head boy and Head Girl with what are they going to replace them with an everybody is equal badge, I certainly hope not for how else will we prepare pupils for the big wide world and the reality that everyone is most definitely not equal.
