New Roles for our Year 6 Pupils

By Louise Mahon, 04 October 2015 – 1 comment

The children in Year 6 presented their election speeches on Thursday.  16 children sought election for a number of important roles, including Head Boy and Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Girl and House Captains.   Without exception, each child impressed, not just the remainder of their peers from whom they were seeking election, but also the teaching staff, many of whom stopped me to express their admiration for the children's public speaking skills.

A common feature of the children's speeches was the importance of being a role model to the younger children in our school. Many also went on to explain how the need to be a good listener was an important charactersitc.  Our children in Year 6 have a wonderful empathy for the younger children around them, and clearly put others' needs first.  

Well done Year 6.

    I applied for Head Girl but I got Matthew house captain so I was happy! It was fun and a good experience though to stand up and talk to the rest of the school. I'm really excited to take on my new role as Matthew House captain!
