Certificate Evening 2016

Why did you want to become Head Boy?

I like leadership roles and responsibility so I looked towards this as a challenge, wanted to support the school in a positive manner and motivate peers and younger students. Another reason I wanted to become head boy was to create a bridge between students and teachers through the stressful period of ‘A levels’ by involving myself in regular meetings with students and teachers.

What does your role involve?

The role involves attending regular meetings with student council and year council meetings across all years. I delegate with students and staff important points raised. I am also expected to attend all events, such as open evenings, that take place throughout the year and conduct speeches. I am also expected to occasionally carry out assemblies for all year groups. I am expected to be a role model and encourage attendance, punctuality, responsibility and good behaviour. I am also involved in charity fundraising working with prefects in different events. I am to be involved in the regeneration project and attend meetings regarding the new build and redevelopment of the area.

What are your personal strengths?

I have strong leadership and communication skills that enable me to work successfully as part of a team. I am self- motivated and passionate about my studies and able to use my own initiative in different situations. I have a good sense of humour and I am a trustworthy and responsible young adult.

What do you see as the strengths of Whitefield School?

The culture and diversity in Whitefield school is well promoted and the relationships between students and staff positive and professional. Students feel a sense of belonging. Teachers care about learning and motivate students to do well. Charity fundraising events are extremely successful throughout the school. The facilities available meet students’ needs and go beyond. Support is always available from class teachers.

What has been the highlight of your time at Whitefield School?

The contemporary design of the sixth form area is both a relaxing and learning environment. The new astro turf is an asset and a good way to get students to be active. Work experience opportunities are amongst the best organizations such as law firms, hospitals and the banking industry.

What are your plans and ambitions for the future?

I have been inspired by the medical field and have always wanted to pursue a career in medicine.

As Head Boy, what kind of legacy would you like to leave at Whitefield?

I would like to leave Whitefield knowing that I have been a successful student that has had the best opportunities possible. I would like to be sure that I have inspired peers and made my school proud of my achievements. I would also like to implement a prayer room facility to meet the students’ requests.

Why did you want to become Head Girl?

My passion and people skills led me to the role. I was selected by my peers to be the Head Girl of Whitefield School and I found this role as an opportunity to make my views heard and to take on extra responsibilities. I also saw it as a chance to help make all students feel welcome when they join the school. Being head girl would be a great chance to boost my confidence for my future career.

What does your role involve?

I have to act as a role model to younger students through showing good leadership, providing support at school events and having a visible presence around the school. I closely work with SLT members in dispensing a better environment. I also try to be a connection between students and teachers, as I represent the students’ interests when I meet with staff.

What are your personal strengths?

I feel I have strong leadership skills, communication skills and am able to work with all sorts of people and this helps me best represent the interests of the students and the school.

What do you see as the strengths of Whitefield School?

The students are driven by passionate, supportive staff members, whether you need help with your work or someone to talk to about any issues you have. There are opportunities available such as after school clubs for students to get involved in, around different departments of the school. The school provides many schemes, workshops and work experience in large organisations that will help students with their future and university life.

What has been the highlight of your time at Whitefield School?

Having the chance to have hard working, supportive teachers who helped me through all these years was a great experience for me, and being involved in the leadership scheme also developed my people and negotiating skills which will help me in my duties as Head Girl and in my future life.

What are your plans and ambitions for the future?

I would like to study Midwifery at university, with my career aim being to work with different hospitals around the country as a registered midwife.

As Head Girl, what kind of legacy would you like to leave at Whitefield?

Whitefield has been my second home for the past five years and I would want to present it the best way possible. I would like to leave here knowing that students feel welcome and fully integrated into the school environment when they join Whitefield, as this is something I want to achieve as Head Girl. I would also like to see the projects I have worked on still being in place over the next few years. I would like to return as guest speaker in future events to motivate and steer students.
