Meet the 2019/20 Student Senior Leadership Team:
(click on a name below to view their profile)
I am proud to have been selected as one of eight people from the UK to hold a position on the Diana Award’s (an anti-bullying charity) national youth board – this has allowed me to accumulate experience in research, support and networking with major organisations such as Facebook, Instagram, the anti-bullying alliance and the UN. Whilst working with these companies, I have helped to create polls that can develop our national understanding of bullying and I have also discussed human rights and anti-bullying laws and features for social media that have now been included as permanent features on Instagram and Facebook.
I hope to extend the knowledge and skills that I have and apply these in school to improve the wellbeing of every single student that attends Whalley Range.
Deputy Head Girls
I want to work closely with Anya to improve anti bullying and mental health standards and I would also like to introduce more careers based inspirational speakers.
I am hoping to do this by ensuring that they can apply the skills and knowledge that they have from their own culture into lessons, whether this be through cooking, religious studies or aspects of culture that can be applied to the core subjects. With regards to promoting a healthy lifestyle, I would like to spread the word of the importance of a healthy lifestyle through different sporting and wellbeing activities in school.
Additionally, with regards to the diversity of the school, I believe it is crucial that we understand events that are happening all around the world, be it positive or negative, social or political, and how these events may affect us, or the people around us. In a society like ours, we should learn to understand each other and our backgrounds so that we can offer our help and support.
I would like to propose a snack bar which includes healthy alternatives such as dried fruit (e.g mangos), protein bars and breakfast bars. My second priority is to promote sporting activities in school as well as the extra-curricular opportunities available in school – I’d like to ensure that students can manage their social time effectively by taking part in these activities and developing crucial skills and stable passions, whether this is through leadership programmes, clubs or school events.
I would like to give all students equal opportunities through various activities and enrichment programmes to help everyone discover their potential and engage in activities that will help develop their skills in the activity and in life.
