Developing as a leader is a huge part of the Year 8 programme at Selwyn House. Every student applies for a leadership role throughout the school and spends a semester working alongside a mentor and leading the school in their selected area. These areas range from ICT to Spanish, Art and Technology to Enviroschools Leaders. We aim to make a contribution at school level as well as out in the community. The programme is enormously successful and the skills gained from this opportunity are incredibly valuable.
Sir Peter Blake was passionate about young people developing as leaders. Every year, there is a competition called The Sir Peter Blake Young Leader Award. Selwyn House selects one talented leader to represent our school in this competition. Every Year 8 student applies to be our nominee by preparing an application and from this, the lucky girl is chosen.
This week, the short list of five very talented leaders was announced. A huge congratulations to these girls who work hard and make an enormous contribution to Selwyn House School.
We are so proud of you and the fact that you have so much initiative and a desire to give back to your school community. Thank you.
Finally, the winner was announced.
A huge congratulations to Aisha! Aisha not only does everything that is asked of her but consistently goes well beyond what is asked, using her initiative to make Selwyn House a better place. She inspires others to contribute and shows genuine joy in the achievements of others. We are so proud of you and wish you the very best for the Sir Peter Blake Award.
