Learning to Lead
Our mission at Huntingtower is not just to educate our pupils in the educational subjects but also in life skills. This week’s activities are an example of this. As our pupils move through the academy, they are provided with the opportunities to take on a variety of leadership roles. We have held two elections this week, one for our Y6 Tower Captains and another for our Academy Council (Years 1 to 6). The children have considered carefully whether they would like to be elected into these roles and prepared themselves thoroughly. I really admire the fact that as they entered themselves as candidates, they understood that not every one could win. All of the candidates have made us very proud and whilst you may need to wait a little longer for the announcement of the Academy Council, I am pleased to announce the following pupils as our Year 6 Tower Captains: for Crane – Lily W and Kaden G, for Dragon – Elina M and Maciej K, for Eiffel – Sophie B and Jakub M and for Galata – Bailie B and Ellie-Mai S. We look forward to working with them over the coming year and I know that they are very excited to start their roles. Please take the time to watch our celebration video on the website/twitter/facebook to hear one of the candidate’s speech!
