This week our Head Boy and Girl, together with their Deputies, spoke at our assembly as to what made them seek leadership positions within John Colet School and what they had gained from the experience. All four spoke with confidence and from the heart, providing examples of how they had grown and the skills they had developed over the year. They provided a wonderful model to our younger students of leadership, yet also of the practical nature of living our Values.
The fine examples provided by our 6th Class were continued on Thursday as our 5th Class students gave speeches to the Primary for next year’s leadership positions. There was very little to separate the children and it was inspiring to see such a depth of maturity and passion with so many seeking to give their time in these roles. It would be difficult to find better examples for our students of how the Value of Service could be articulated in such a positive and relevant way.
