HEAD BOY REPORT
What a year!
I am so happy and grateful I was entrusted with the Head Boy role for 2021. Not only has this year challenged my abilities in various areas, but it has also forced me to develop personal and team leadership skills that enabled our perfect team to lead positive change within our school. Why no one singular accomplishment stands out above the rest, I believe every moment where we stepped outside of our comfort zone is what defined our success. Failing is simply the opportunity to begin again, but this time more intelligently. Personally, I have failed many times in life, especially this year, although every time, I have learned from my mistakes and seeked to correct where I went wrong.
Covid-19 and some personal family circumstances have made this school year the most challenging. Yet still, I have stood strong like a rock in the ocean and not allowed the waves crashing around me to affect me. Firstly, I would like to thank my family for all their love and support. Secondly, I would like to thank Mrs Gilbert-Smith and every teacher who believed in me and enabled me to see a vision, even back when I personally could not see it for myself. Finally, I would like to thank Student Board of Trustees Representative Ben Woodgates, the Deputy Head Boys, Mahanga Mitchell, Hugo Davidson, Shi-on Ko and our entire prefect team for their relentless work in 2021. We have accomplished some pretty extraordinary personal and team accolades this year, brothers. Although, unfortunately, we will not step into the new school next year, I can proudly say that we left WBHS in a better place than we found it.
