My favourite part of my role is working with younger peers and staff, feeding back to each other on all the great things we are doing to make school life better - which has helped me understand important aspects of working in a community and driving change.
Tiffany Djagnikpo
Diversity & Inclusion Student Leader, Student Union
I am enjoying being a student leader on the food committee because I can put my ideas out there and share ideas of my form too. It shows that Year 7 has a voice. This role has really helped me to listen to other people which I think is a great thing to be able to do.
Eleanor Terry
Food Committee Student Leader
The best thing about being a Digital Student Leader is meeting many new people and working with students from Year 7 to Year 11. This leadership role really helps to develop teamwork skills as many of the resources we make, we work on with other leaders, friends and peers, in groups.
