It is an honour and a privilege to be named as your Head Prefect for 2023!
This year I am lucky enough to be accompanied by seven enthusiastic prefects and an amazing group of Year 13 students. Like myself Year 13’s all hold the same vision as to how we aim to approach our final year at SGHS.
We aspire for this year to be one full of not only personal growth and success but for us as a year level to each adopt an approachable nature so we can connect and immerse ourselves in the school community. After now having spent 5 years in red shoes I have come to the realisation as to how each person is valued and plays a pivotal role in the success of the school. This stems from good support from teachers and whānau, flourishing friendships and the willingness to experience something new. Stepping into this leadership opportunity I aspire to allow myself to dream big in order to establish and achieve my goals and encourage others to do so. I see this year as being one that is driven by a student helping student approach. I believe that together through the act of kindness we can reach out to those around us to accommodate their needs with the driving question, “How can I give back to the wider community?”. When are thoughts are being casted beyond the wants and desires of our own hearts only then can we see change happen.
I will do everything in my power to make sure that this year is one filled with positive change and growth and I am very excited to be beside you every step of the way! I encourage you to make the most of every opportunity that comes your way as we are truly blessed to have numerous options outside and within the curriculum that become a part of who we are. To all students, please come to me with your ideas and don’t be afraid to say hello as it makes my day when you do and whānau if you ever have any queries don’t hesitate to ask.

I understand that playing sport is an opportunity for me to learn, practice skills, and gain attitudes and values in an environment outside of the school. I realise that this requires me to take on genuine responsibility for my own enjoyment and safety and that of others.
I agree to do the following to make this happen:
