Why do you want to be student leader?
I would like to be a student leader because it is the perfect opportunity to continue to be a part of growing our school community. It will broaden my horizons and help me to be more active in the school. As I am coming to the end of my high school journey, I would like to take advantage of any opportunities I have been given and use them to support and encourage my peers and classmates, so that they can in turn, spread knowledge, care for others and achieve their best, creating a safe and inviting environment for the school.
What are your top three strengths that would assist you in fulfilling this role?
I think one of my greatest strengths is my strong work ethic. I have a strong sense of duty to my work and always put in as much effort and energy as I can, getting my work done even in the face of difficult obstacles.
Another strength I believe to be important is my creativity and ingenuity. I have the ability to see a situation from different perspectives and create a solution that best fits, something which can often be useful in organising events of any scale.
I am very proud of my ability to communicate well to others. As an aspiring actress/performer, I feel comfortable presenting to large groups of people and don’t have a problem with public speaking, a vital part in being a school leader.
How are you currently demonstrating leadership in our school community?
Since starting school here at Lakeside College in 2014, I have held a few leadership positions, including Music Captain and Hessel House Captain. Aside from these duties and responsibilities, I always look for any further ways I can help out around the school. I have attended many Open Days, engaging in school tours, musical entertainment and other activities. I have also helped out, where able, with the Primary School Musicals, assisting teachers in organising students backstage. .
