Fourteen Year 6 pupils arrived in class 1T yesterday morning to deliver speeches explaining why they should be voted Head Boy and Head Girl.
KS1 pupils listened beautifully as Shahpour, Arthur, Abudi and Faisal from 6W took turns to tell us what being Head Boy would mean to them. Then, ten Year 6 girls – Rachel, Nouf, Alex, Manuela, Amiira, Neva, Louisa, Violette, Emma and Lucia! – took to the stage to say what they would would do if they became Head Girl.
All the candidates thought that being kind and setting a good example to other students will be an important part of the job. Discussing school clubs, thinking of new places to go on school trips, and playing with younger students in the garden if they are lonely were some of the ideas discussed, (along with negotiating longer garden time and putting pancakes on the school menu!). The students told us about their success in sports clubs and in winning points for their Houses, and felt that they would make great role models for other pupils by always being friendly and happy to help.
The Head Boy and Girl will play an important part in St. Nicholas’ School Council, lead by Ms Rogers. The council will meet every other week and a boy and girl from each class from Years 3 -6 will attend meetings. This year there will be a Suggestion Box in every classroom so students can contribute their ideas about how we can make St. Nicholas even better.
A huge well done to the Year 6 pupils who spoke so confidently in front of students and staff. Teachers will now help their classes decide who to vote for, and the results will be announced in assembly this Friday.
