Question 3

    ‘The School Hero’ is an award meant for the student considered to have exhibited exemplary leadership qualities. As the Senior Prefect, write a letter to the Head of your school, giving three reasons why your nominee should be given the award.


This was quite a popular question. Many candidates who attempted it were able to give convincing reasons to support their nominees. They listed many good leadership qualities which their nominees possessed. Many of them were able to substantiate their points with relevant instances in which these qualities were displayed by their nominees. Some candidates, on the other hand, could not advance good and convincing reasons why their nominee should be given the award.
