This term we welcomed our new student leaders for WGSG and WGSB, please see below a message from our new Head Boys and Girls.
I am delighted to be chosen as the new Head Girl at WGSG. I have gained so much from growing up at Wilmington with memories I will never forget. I first joined Wilmington from a small school called Merton Court with only 15 people in my class, so joining Wilmington was a daunting aspect for me but after the first day I was already so comfortable and I knew I loved belonging to such an amazing school, one of the main reasons why I am so pleased to be the new Head Girl.
I hope to make the best possible impact in my time as I can as Head Girl. Eventually I hope to go to university in order to study as a midwife, which is my dream career. At present I am studying Maths, History and Psychology, which are subjects that I am passionate about and thoroughly enjoy studying. My non-academic interests are drama and I also attend a residential boot camp every so often. I find this really pushes me physically and mentally to the limit which I enjoy immensely. I have so many ideas that I hope to implement within the coming year with the help of the new leadership team. I am very excited looking at the academic year ahead and working with such a great team.
My name is Ryan Holczimmer and I have been a student at WGSB for the past six years. In the next academic year I will be representing WG6 as head boy and this is something that I am really looking forward to. I am currently studying Economics, Maths and Geography, three subjects that I am very passionate about. I am reliable and committed and I would encourage you to approach me with any problems you may have and I will do all I can to help with these. Along with the three other head students, Abbie, Jake and Maddie, and the rest of the student leadership team I am sure that I will have a positive impact on WG6 as well as both Wilmington schools.
As head boy for WGSG, I am looking forward to the year ahead and all of the challenges that it may bring. This year, we are introducing a new house system into the school, where we shall have five different houses rather than the four we have had previously, and the names of these houses will be named after five types of tree. As well as this, being a very keen sportsman myself, we are looking to organise several sporting competitions within the school where we hope to get as many people as possible involved. Another main objective that we hope to meet is the fundraising for both charities and the end of year prom, which we hope shall run smoothly. There is however, some problems which we want to resolve in and around the school, the main one being communications, as during my time up at the girls school we have noticed that there is still a huge issue between the communication between students, parents and teachers. This is something we hope to resolve.
My name is Abbie Rudkin and I am the new head girl at WGSB. I hope to start building a good bond with the rest of the school. The one main goal in which I have set myself is to go to Sandhurst Military Academy and join the Army, I still remain very dedicated and hard working towards this and am not going to give up until I have succeeded. It is something that I have wanted to do for many years, and know that this is the perfect route for me after sixth form. Setting a personal goal, I think is very important as it gives you something to work towards and motivate you to always try your best!
I like to think of myself as being a very hard working, organised and punctual student who always tries my best to help others in any way I can. I have a very friendly, approachable personality and would be more than happy to offer my advice to anyone that wanted to talk. I can be relied upon, and make sure that I carry out tasks to the best of my ability. I have strong leadership skills in which will help liaise between other student leaders and the head of WG6 and I feel I could make necessary decisions in order to benefit the rest of the school. I am very excited about the upcoming year at WGSB, and am going to try my best in order to make a difference, which will also have an impact on the school once I leave. I do not give up when things get tough, therefore will overcome any problems in which I face and work as an active member of the WG6 student leadership team to make the year as enjoyable as possible for every student.
