    Smile the head boy

    Hello.I'm wondering what the head boy means in this context.
    I don't think it is the head boy or the head girl in school.
    Is he just a boy who is up in the tree?
    Please help! Thank you.

    Re: the head boy

    I think it probably is the head boy in school. Everyone likes to see those in power get taken down a notch. Here is a dictionary definition:

    a senior boy in a school who is the leader of the students and who represents the school on official occasions

    head boy - definition. American English definition of head boy by Macmillan Dictionary
