Some of the prefects for 2024

Angus Loe: Sports prefect

Angus is involved in many sports with his favourite being rowing and hockey. He came to McGlashan from Weston Primary School near Oamaru; he has spent the previous 5 in the hostel where he is a clan leader.

Angus has been blessed with opportunities through sport at the college and is determined to make sure that all other boys get the same opportunities and joy from participating in sports as he has.

His message to the student body would be to ‘take advantage of the great opportunity provided as the school quote says "to whom much is given much will be expected".

Emilio Ghosh-Novero: Arts and Cultural Prefect

Emilio is deeply entrenched in the school's music scene.

Emilio is eager to use his experiences to try help promote the arts and humanities through the college. He believes being at JMC is a fantastic experience and the school offers a myriad of opportunities and experiences to create a great foundation for every Johnnies boy. He truly believes everyone can and should make the most of their time at the college.

Oliver Hamilton: Deputy Head Boy and various roles

He lives on a 40-acre lifestyle block in Blueskin Bay, just north of Dunedin, but also lived in Australia for five years, during his preschool and much of my primary school. His interests include art, football and rowing and learning about the world. Oli’s advice for students is to be appreciative of anything and everything and have honest reflection about yourself.

Finn Anderson: Academic Prefect

Finn is from Dunedin and has been at JMC since Year 7. He likes basketball and rugby, but DEFINITELY not cricket. He is one of this year's academic and leadership prefects. One way you could help him out would be to volunteer as a tutor. If this sounds like something you could do please email Finn or Mrs. Smith and feel free to talk to him about anything, because he has all the answers.

Jonty Riley: Head Boy and various roles

He grew up in the St Clair area of Dunedin where he attended St Clair Primary until year 6. Since then he has spent every year here at McGlashan and has loved every minute. Jonty has a lot of interest in sports in which he participates in a wide range from rugby to water-skiing and even handball. He has thoroughly enjoyed getting to know those of you who have come up and had a yarn. He will always be keen for a chat. From here he looks forward to continuing to build the college’s special character and relish the motto at the head of the gym.
