Elected Year 13 students who have been appointed as this year’s Head Boy and Head Girl at Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School have been reflecting on their attributes for the job ahead.

Already they are making great strides as school ambassadors with their first formal role at the school’s annual open evening on October 8, when prospective Year six primary students and their parents will receive a warm welcome from staff and students.

Head Girl Amy Blyth said: “I think that I am easy to talk to and approachable. If someone has a problem then I will always listen intently and carefully consider their concerns and help where I can without a doubt.

“I’m very excited to have been elected as this year’s Head Girl, I’ll give my absolute best and I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity.”

Head Boy Joseph Garside said: “I was incredibly pleased when I was told I was going to be head boy at HLHS. I couldn’t believe it.

“I aim to do the very best I can in the role, and will work hard to keep everybody as happy as possible.

“I’d like to think that the main qualities I bring to the table are that I’m attentive, understanding and easy-going. I think these skills will be influential to me this year and will aid me in being the best I possibly can.

“Thank you to everyone who’s given me this chance.”
