I am immensely proud of Queen Charlotte College, our school, our whanau, and it is this pride that amplified the honour that I felt when my name was announced as Head Girl 2018, and that empowers me to put my all into the role. This year, it will be great to work with Tom, as well as all the 2018 student council team. We aim to maintain the attributions of previous head students and also look forward to adding our own contributions to enhance all students potential to learn, grow as strong individuals and enjoy the time they spend at school. For me personally, before I leave, I’d love to know that all students have found QCC to be a safe and encouraging environment in which to express themselves and gain knowledge, skills and confidence for the future, as these few years of our life are memories we will cherish and use as we step up into bigger responsibilities.
Becoming Head Boy had been a dream of mine since Year 7, a goal I had been working towards for years. To have finally achieved this goal was a tremendous honour and to this day, has still not quite sunk in. With some big shoes to fill, Celene and I are looking forward to representing this school to the best of our abilities, focusing on maintaining the family feel within the student body. I know our student council this year are already working on some awesome projects that we hope to see through with the goal of positively enhancing our student’s overall experience here at QCC. As well as working alongside Council to achieve these projects, I hope to use this platform I’ve been privileged enough to have, to be a role model in which students can relate to and aspire to be like. I’m looking forward to working alongside Celene and know that we’ll tackle any challenges 2018 will throw at us head on, with the best interests of everyone in mind.
