Pupils as leaders

FRIENDLY FACES

Our Friendly Faces have been wonderful this week welcoming back our children in years 1 to 6. Next week they are really looking forward to welcoming our new to EYFS children during their very first days at APPS.

"As a Friendly face, we come in to school 10 minutes early and wait at the gates just in case anyone feels unsettled or needs escorting to their classroom. We get to wear yellow luminous vest tops and a round smiley faced badge!"

"A Friendly face is being a good role model and being as kind as possible. We are here to help if you need us, just give us a shout!"

"As a Friendly face you get lots of opportunities to meet new children and show them around our school."

"As a Friendly face, it's important to always wear a smile."

"Being a Friendly face is a great job and I would definately recommend applying for it."

"As a Friendly face it is my job to help keep everybody safe."

"When the new Reception children start school next week, we are responsible for showing them to their class, where to put their things and to provide the mums and dads with tissues in case they cry."

“Hi, I’m Emily and I want to become head girl. I’ve wanted to be head girl ever since I saw head girls and boys back when I was in year 1. I was inspired by how caring and supportive they were and knew that this was a goal that I wanted to achieve when I got to year 6!

I wish to be a head girl because I want to help make the school a better environment for everyone and encourage others to reach their potential.

I believe I would make a brilliant head girl since I am compassionate, respectful and always look out for others. I’m reliable and 100% committed to ensuring your voice is heard.  Therefore, I’m always open to your suggestions and new ideas to make our school the best we can! I constantly try to show our school values: belonging, compassion, challenge, resilience, aspiration and peace in my actions and use them as a constant reminder to always remember to be kind to others and persevere to overcome challenges that we face.

So if you want a fun, enthusiastic school, vote for me!

Thank you for listening. :D”

 

“Hello, I’m Nathan. Some of you may know me but some may not. I think that I would make a really good head boy at Ashford Park Primary School since I would represent the school very well. I work very hard and put all of my effort into my work, and I will listen to everybody’s ideas and do the best that I can to make those ideas come to life. I would really appreciate it if you vote for me. Thank you.

 

“Good morning / afternoon everyone. My name is Eesa and I am running for head boy (as you already know). I would like to receive this role because I am a proud member of Ashford Park, and I would like to represent it in the best way I possibly can.

I will show good behaviour at all times, I will respect teachers and children; I will be a role model for the whole school. I shall show good leadership as well.

I am extremely confident when speaking with staff and children, also when making speeches in front of an audience (like now). I am very approachable and kind too.

Thank you for your time.

Please vote for me. “

 

“Good morning! As some of you know, my name is Ashleen and I am here today to tell you why I feel I deserve to be your head girl for this year.

I feel I have many strengths and skills that are needed to be a good head girl. I am patient, kind and caring and listen to everyone’s views, whilst keeping an unbiased opinion myself.

I know being a head girl is a big responsibility and I feel I can fulfil it to the best of my ability. Finally, if I were head girl, I would find different ways to encourage as many of you guys and the younger students to become more involved in making you and our school the best we can be!”
