Prefect system at P.C.S
It has always been a part of school life in Portumna Community School to have prefects in 6th Year; pupils who have the respect of the pupil body as well as the staff and who are entrusted with certain duties and responsibilities.
There is an application process each spring and the staff convenes each May to appoint prefects for the following year upon.
Prefects, therefore, work closely alongside their Year Head and provide a very valuable layer to the day-to-day smooth running of the school.
The role of prefect is always expanding to try and help meet the needs of an ever-expanding school community.
