How does it feel to the first Head Boy and Head Girl of the Primary School?

JL: It feels amazing to be Primary Head Boy as you can stand up and lead other students and be confident.

Yumin: Since we are the first head boy and girl of

Primary, it’s all a new experience to us and the rest of the Primary students, and as we have been voted in we will do a good job.

Can you tell us a little bit about what your roles will be?

JL: To be a role model to the other students in Primary.

Y: To do lots of work with the Student Council, listening to the students and making improvements at school by letting the school know about changes that students would like to see.

How do you hope to make a difference in the life of the Primary School? What will you do to make the school better for your fellow students and their families?

Y: I was thinking about making a suggestion box for the students to write down their suggestions on paper and help improve the school.

JL: We would then take these suggestions to the Student

Council meeting and discuss what the students would like with them, and then see what we could do to help.

What changes students told you that they would like to see so far?

Y: Lots of students have said they would like new water cups to be at the water fountains.

JL: Students have said they would like to see changes to the lunch menu.

Are you both looking forward to starting at Secondary? What are you looking forward to the most?

Both: Yes, it looks amazing there.
