After being selected as Head Boy and Head Girl of 2016/17, we are pleased to have been given the opportunity to introduce ourselves and inform you as to what we intend to do in our role in the coming year.
A major part of our duties will be leading the School Council. This will give us the opportunity to look at different aspects of school life which we could improve, listening to all students points of view. We feel it is very important to ensure everyone at Oakwood has a voice in school and that their opinions and ideas be considered. We have a clear schedule for the year to follow and we are looking forward to contributing in moving the school forward over the next year.
We are looking forward to working with our deputies as part of the Student Leadership Team to ensure that all student leaders work together as a team on a daily basis as part of our daily duties, supporting school functions and supporting each other. We are fortunate enough to have Lower School Prefects in Year 9, Prefects in Years 10 and 11, Peer Mentors in Year 10 and 11 and Peer Mediators.
As far as our own ideas and goals, our main ones at the moment are; ensuring that all student leaders understand their role and we have an effective system to support each other. Last year the School Council worked on producing a Home School Charter and we would like to continue with this work in becoming a Rights Respecting School to ensure that all at Oakwood understand that they have rights.
If there is anything you would like to suggest to either of us or you would like an informal chat we are both very approachable people who I’m sure you will see around school. We look forward to seeing you there in the coming year and we hope we can make a difference to your everyday school lives anyway we can.
