Head Girls & Leadershipâ for Academic Year 2015-2016
Aspiring campaign journalist Olivia Buckley has been elected as Loreto Grammar School's new head girl.
After being shortlisted by the school's senior management team, Olivia, 16, from sale, won an election of her peers and the teaching staff and aims to make her year at the helm, a year to remember.
Olivia said: “I am deeply honoured to become Head Girl at Loreto. I am proud of the school and all it represents because Loreto very much stands for freedom and equality.
One of her main objectives will be to welcome the youngest girls into their community. “I think it is important for the older girls to reassure those girls coming into the school in Year 7 in particular, especially those who may be coming as the only entrant from their primary school that they will make friends and they will have a wonderful time.”
But she also wants to ensure older pupils get the most out of Sixth Form life. “It is easy for a gap to develop between Year 12 and Year 13 girls, but we should be a collective and all the happier for that, so right away I will be looking to build bridges with the girls who are now in Year 11 and with whom we will sharing the common room next year.”
She added: “Certain occasions will be nerve racking such as addressing over 3,000 people in the Bridgewater Hall, but it's also going to be a hugely exciting and I have decided just to enjoy each challenge as it comes.”
The 16-year-old from Sale who got two A*s and seven As in her GCSEs is pictured with her deputies Lydia Hyland 17 and Morgan Sheridan 16 both from Altrincham.
Loreto Grammar School's Director of Sixth Form Ms Jordan said: "It is a joy to work with young people who are so committed to their community. Shortlisting applicants for election is always difficult, as the Sixth Formers take their role as leaders seriously and make a great contribution to school life.”
