The Head Girl’s Message
I am so honoured to have been elected as Queenswood’s Head Girl this academic year, and my fellow Senior Prefects and I are excited to be fulfilling our roles. Following on from the incredible work of Jasmine Steyne and her team, we definitely have some big shoes to fill.
The 12 of us are the representative voice for the student body at Queenswood, each with specific areas of focus, and our own goals in these fields. We meet regularly with the Senior Management Team to discuss how we can work together to further improve the school for students and staff.
As the Senior Prefect Team, we’d really like to increase and maintain the already high level of House spirit and inter-House cooperation that exists at Queenswood, which manifests itself at events such as House Performing Arts, Sports Day and the Inter-House Quiz. We’ll be at every event rooting for our respective Houses.
Additionally, we’d like to focus on celebrating the rich and diverse community that we enjoy here at Q, with people from all walks of life, with different hobbies and interests, with different strengths and weaknesses. The school’s vast array of co-curricular activities inspires girls to achieve a great deal beyond their lessons.
The House system has been one of my favourite aspects of Queenswood life; it has provided me with such a sense of belonging and the support to truly be myself. The co-curricular programme has afforded me the opportunity to go to Barcelona on Hockey tours, perform at the Barbican and visit Washington, D.C. I cannot imagine my time at Q without the four Houses and the friendly competition that they have inspired, or taking a well-deserved break from homework by playing the piano in the music block.
If you see any of the Senior Prefect Team around school, don’t be afraid to come and say hi!
