Firstly, I would like to become Head Girl as I feel I have the ability. If I was to become Head Girl it would be a great personal achievement for myself. I would love to become Head Girl as I feel I could contribute towards College in a positive way. If I was to become Head Girl I know I would put the effort into talking to you, whether it is through sport activities, lessons or just around school. I would hope you would feel free to come to me and tell me your opinions and I would like to put them forward and a make a difference.
Sport is a big part of my life and I would like to make it a bigger part in college life. For that reason I would enjoy being Head Girl even more if I was to be able to cover a large amount of your viewpoints and get you involved even more. I would also like to become Head Girl for myself so I can put forward some ideas of my own and have a bigger role in college.
Emma Moore Hello my name is Emma Moore and I would like to be your Head Girl. I would like to lead you into your last year and help you and the whole school to work together to be the best you can be. I think I would fit this role as I am responsible, trustworthy and respectful. I have represented the school for many things such as playing rugby and netball.
I have an older brother and younger sister so I know a range of people in different years. I would relish the opportunity to work with teachers and students to make a difference… and I will leave you with this.
Rebecca Capewell Over my time at Bishop Perowne I have taken part in many college activities and events, including attending regular community parliament meetings. Overall I have got a lot out of college life. Now is my chance to give something back. I have always prided myself as a hard-working and trustworthy individual, who is willing to have a go at anything given the chance and give all when doing so. I am also a good listener a trait I think a Head Girl needs to have to be effective. I am able to take others thoughts into account and respect their opinions, to help make our college a better place to work in. Many people see Head Girl as a role of great power over others, this is not my view, I see Head Girl as a role of great responsibility to help people get involved more in college and get people’s views heard and spoken to the wider community. Voting for me is voting for confidence, more involvements and good role model for the school.
Abigail Whitehouse The reasons I want to be Head Girl is to give something back to the school, where we have made some good friends, and some not so good friends, whilst learning a lot on the way. Although I am not the most outgoing person, I am friendly and a good listener. Therefore, as Head Girl, I hope that any of you will feel able to speak to me about any aspect of school or any ideas you might have to improve the college. Whilst I’m not a fairy godmother, who can grant all your wishes, I would try my best to help you. I feel that I can be a good influence on what happens in the college, rather than just watching from the sidelines. Finally, if I was 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 the college, the best we can be.
Beth Fuller My name is Beth but that you probably know. Three reasons for Head Girl to you I’m going to show. A challenge and team work both these I do enjoy and I see this as essential to be Head Girl or Boy. To pay back something to College is reason number two. To serve both pupils and staff is a thing I’d like to do. Now if I’m truly honest I really am quite shy, so to step outside my comfort zone is something I’d like to try. I’ve benefitted greatly from all that I’ve learnt here, I sincerely hope that my reasons have been made very clear. Thank you all for listening to my effort of a rhyme.
I’d like to say a whole lot more but now I’m out of time. Laura-Beth Hardwick Hi I’m Laura-Beth. So I have one minute. I could promise you the world, like many candidates would, but you’re too smart for that. So I’ll tell it to you straight. Why I would like to serve as Head Girl. I believe our college is like a tree; we are all different parts of this tree, for example – The teachers are like the roots, which supplement us with knowledge and help us to grow. If I was Head Girl, I would be like the manure which the gardener spreads to enrich the ground, just that little added extra can make a big difference. I realise that, being Head Girl isn’t about being better than anyone else. It’s about having the trust of the student body to organise and represent them with honesty and enthusiasm, whenever called upon. I have the compassion to listen, the ability to always work hard, yet have a good sense of humour. So don’t vote for me just because of my good looks and charming demeanour, although you might be tempted to do that. Vote for me because you have excellent taste and superb decision making skills!

I would like to be Head Girl of Bishop Perowne because I would like to help inspire others to work together to make this school a great place to be, for everyone. My motivator in this school has been Mr Walsh.
From day one he has made me aspire to be better, try harder and try to achieve the impossible. He even helped me pass my maths GCSE a year early. In my absence, I have had to try and do this for myself and I’ve learned, it’s far easier to help each other and work together, than it is to do it by yourself. If we inspire each other, listen to each other and work together we can develop good relationships and increase our chances of success in all aspects of college, as well as academically. I am easy to talk to and very approachable and if I am made Head Girl I will strive to use my excellent communication skills to get everyone involved and inspired, to help make life at school better for us all. So please vote for me!
Jack Downing Hello and welcome to today’s sixth contestant on the Head Boy factor. Please give a warm welcome to Jack Downing. Now, there are many reasons why I wish to become Head Boy, but due to time limitations I shall only name a few. Firstly, I want to give something back to our school. Bishop Perowne has provided me with many opportunities, so now I want to provide new creative activities for you. This links into my second reason. Giving you a voice. I believe it is very important for you to have a say in how the school is run: so it can be tailored to each and every one of you. With your help, and my excellent communication skills, I hope to make year eleven perfect for all of us! It is now up to you to decide my fate. Do I leave early or do I go through to the next round at Ms Farr’s Barbados Villa. I have been Jack Downing; I’m not too sure about Ms Farr’s villa but thanks for listening and please vote for me.

Good morning everyone. My name is Jonathan Tayler and today I would like to say why I would like to serve you all as Head Boy of our school. Over the past four years I’ve got to know a lot of you, and made some very good friends. I’ve had some great times playing sport and doing shows for the school. And, over this period I’ve seen us grow, and hopefully, become a bit more mature. If I was chosen as Head Boy, I would want to represent you, as well as inspire you. I’m friendly and approachable, so if anything is troubling you about school life, or if you have a really good idea, you won’t need to keep it to yourself. I want the student’s voice, that’s your voice, heard at Bishop Perowne. I know being Head Boy is a big responsibility. If given the opportunity, I would take that responsibility seriously, and be a respectable role model for all of you. I would want to be seen as a team leader, and encourage all of us to be the best that we can be. Thank you.
Connor Sheridan Hello, I am Connor Sheridan and I would like to be Head Boy. So, why would I be a good Head Boy? Well to start with I am very reliable and I am hardworking. I am extremely punctual and I am very easy to approach, so you don’t need to think twice about asking me a question or suggesting an idea. If I were to be Head Boy I would lead by example. I also consider myself to be very confident. If I were to become Head Boy I would like to make sports a bigger part of school life, for those of us who enjoy a wide range of sports. This might involve finding local companies to sponsor new kits, especially for a football kit. I would like to make the link between the council and students stronger, so the voice of the pupils can be heard. Thank you for listening.
Joseph Ingles Good morning everyone. My name is Joseph Ingles. As some of you may know, I like to do a bit of cooking and so in my mind the role of Head Boy is a lot like a Victoria sponge cake. I can see that some of you are looking a bit confused so I will explain:- A Victoria sponge cake deconstructed is just a few simple ingredients but when put together can be so much more, and that is how I see myself as Head Boy. Firstly you have the flour a strong dependable ingredient that forms a durable foundation. Its determination will eventually see the product rise to new heights. Next you have the sugar, a quirky ingredient; it is original, exciting and also innovative. Next comes the butter, now butter is an honest ingredient, it knows it is big on calories but doesn’t try to hide it. This honesty is essential when you have a role of great responsibility. Last are the eggs – the binding of all these essential attributes – together in the form of a great Head Boy. As you can see (pointing at a PowerPoint presentation) we now have, not the recipe for a Victoria sponge, but the attributes that I feel I could bring to the role of your Head Boy. Thank you
Jack Dennehy I want to be a Head Boy because I think I have the strengths and personality to take on this responsible and challenging role. I would take hands on approach to the job and my listening and communication skills would help me considerably to take into account all of the students’ views and opinions. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years so far at Bishop Perowne College and have enjoyed taking an active role helping with the open evenings working with teachers and staff. I feel I am enthusiastic, energetic and have good leadership and communication skills. I also have an excellent sense of humour which always helps. I understand the role of Head Boy would be a challenging role but I would look forward to those challenges with energy and a level head. The role of Head Boy would also benefit me in learning a whole range of new skills in office. This would be an exciting opportunity for me and I hope I get the role. Thank you all for listening (take a bow). Cameron Brett
Hello. I have been at this school for the same period of time as you, nearly 4 full academic years now, and I have seen Leadership teams old and new, go by as I have been learning through this school. It has seemed a job to admire, as whoever gets into the Leadership team gets a proper say in how things are run. I have seen problems occur in school, and I have seen problems disappear thanks to the Leadership team. This is the reason I want to be Head Boy. I want to have the power where I can physically make a difference in how things are run. I want to be ‘behind the scenes’, and see how things are organised, and also be involved in this. I want to improve the qualities and skills I possess at the moment, and become a better person overall. But, there’s one more thing: I want to get the best out of all of you. I have seen happiness and sadness over my 4 years, and I want to change the negatives into positives. I want to leave the school in a year’s time, knowing that I have done something to change this school for the better. If I can do that, then I will be happy. Thank you for listening, and please vote me for Head Boy.
