Meet our Head Boy & Head Girl

Profile: Piotr - HEAD BOY

Why did you want to become Head Boy?

By getting the role I was able to give something back to the school. I knew the role would require a lot of commitment and would challenge me in every aspect of my personality. It taught me a lot about how to work with people and the responsibility that I withheld prepared me for the world of work and allowed me to grow as a person.  

What does your role involve?

My role, as a head boy, consisted of being a role model for younger years to inspire them to be a good representative of Whitefield. I helped with number of events run in school, such as open day and parents’ evenings, where I had to make sure that the school is represented in the best way possible. I also worked closely with SLT members to ensure students’ concerns are heard and taken into account.
 

What are your personal strengths?

 I think my personal strength is the ability to communicate with people across different age groups and this helped me a lot when I had to negotiate students’ issues with staff members or when I had to motivate students to take part in school’s life.
 

What do you see as the strengths of Whitefield School?

The biggest strength of Whitefield is definitely how diverse the school is. We have students from all over the world and all sorts of backgrounds and they all fell safe and welcome in this environment. I personally worked closely with the school Librarian to ensure that our school is a place where things such as sexism, homophobia, transphobia or racism doesn't exist.
 

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

The highlight of my time in Whitefield was I think the chance to make my ideas be turned into reality, as well as the ideas of other students could be heard, because I helped their voice be heard in the school. Also, it allowed me to develop my public speaking skills, which I struggled with before I became a head boy.  
 

What are your plans and ambitions for the future?

I would like to study Psychology at the university, with my career aim being to work as a qualified Social Sciences teacher.
 

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

I would like to leave school knowing that it is a fully accepting and safe environment, where all students are able to express themselves in a way they want and be always treated with respect. I want the school to be free and homophobia and any form of bullying to ensure all the students can develop their confidence to the succeed in later life.

Profile: Yuden - HEAD GIRL

Why did you want to become Head Girl?

I wanted to be Head girl because I wanted to share my ideas and make it possible to make this school even better than it already is.  I like a challenge, so even though I was new to this school, I put myself up for the position and got chosen. Hopefully from this, the school gets more candidates for this position as students would feel more confident in putting themselves up for this role. I also wanted to be Head girl, because students usually told me what they wanted to improve in school, and this would be a great opportunity to get their thoughts and ideas out there to the staff. 

What does your role involve?

The role includes creating new ideas in order to fundraise  for charity and also to make students more aware of things going on in the world. I need to be a role model and inspire students to do better by involving them in activities that would boost their character and CV. I need to help students in any way I can, by taking their ideas into consideration and getting them to be heard. I am expected to help out in my free lessons,  go to all events held by school and even make speeches in assembly.

What are your personal strengths?

I have strong leadership skills, which I have achieved by putting myself out there in various activities. I am very social and approachable, so students feel comfortable talking to me about their concerns. I am able to put myself in other people's shoes so I know how certain people are to be approached. I am also good at team work, which is necessary for this role, because I need to be able to work well with the prefects and Deputies in order to get things done smoothly. 

What do you see as the strengths of Whitefield School?

The school has a very friendly environment and many students would call it their second home.  All students feel very comfortable and at ease. The staff is very supportive and helps out when any student needs extra attention or help in general. The school provides many opportunities that would help us for our future such as different workshops that benefit us. 

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

Having so many opportunities such as ACCESS and standing for the role of head girl has been very beneficial to me. The projects and duties I have to attend to as Head girl helps me build my character and would help me in the long run. 

What are your plans and ambitions for the future?

I would like to be a child psychologist. I love listening to people and giving them advise, and if I could make it into a profession, I would not only enjoy it but also make a living out of it. 

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

I would like to leave Whitefield school knowing that I have inspired people to be more confident. I will hopefully do that by bringing Trinity Speech and Drama into the school which is an organization that helps with making speeches, improving vocabulary and confidence. Confidence makes everything better since people feel comfortable in their own skin and can achieve more. I would like to leave Whitefield knowing that the younger students feel this way since it is needed for most of the jobs and generally, in your personality.
