Head Students Connect

Lionel and I had the privilege of attending the Head Student lunch and leadership workshop at Selwyn College. This gave us the opportunity to meet the head students from 50 schools from around Auckland and hear from 3 incredible guest speakers. The guest speakers inspired us to be the best leaders we can be for Edgewater and taught us some handy tips for the year ahead. The head students got the chance to interact with each other in some fun and challenging games, it bought us all together as a leadership group rather than us individual head students and it was amazing to get to know the head students in an environment away from school. Both Lionel and I are extremely excited to work together with the deputy head students, Natasha and Quentin and can’t wait to see what we can do together as a group.

Our meeting with the other head students at Botany College went well. The meeting was about what charities we were hoping to do fundraisers for as a way for schools to give back to the community. In this meeting, we decided on two charities to donate to. The I Am Hope foundation and Auckland City Mission were two charities we were wanting to fundraise for and donate to, with the help of students from high schools throughout the East Auckland area. It was nice meeting the other head students and seeing the passion that we all had towards wanting to help make our communities a better place for the following generations. Also despite the tragic events that took place in Christchurch, the amount of support in the room was very heartwarming and encouraging to see from fellow students.
