Head Girl's Welcome
My name is Jessica and I am honoured and privileged to be the Head Girl for the next academic year 2021-2022. Over the course of the academic year, I hope to achieve and maintain a school environment where everyone feels connected and safe. This will be through a sense of security where the girls know they have someone to talk to or are able to reach out to others for extra help, especially in their work, without feeling ashamed or embarrassed. By showing this level of kindness and compassion to others, we as a school community will be able to fully understand our role as a Catholic and how we should live our lives according to God by showing love and respect for everyone.
During my time at the Sacred Heart Language College I have developed a deep understanding and belief in the role which hard-work, personal responsibility and friendship has in my life and I will carry this with me beyond my time at the Sacred Heart. The school has allowed me opportunities to broaden my skills and talents beyond academic learning whether that be playing for the school’s football team, representing the school in Harrow’s swimming gala or being my form’s charity representative. Head Girls from previous years have proven to be positive role models for the school community and demonstrated a great deal of courage of not only speaking in public to the entire school but to parents and prospective parents. This was my inspiration, to challenge myself and apply for this role of Head Girl.
I hope in my role to be able to inspire students no matter what year they are in and to strive to reach their full potential, express themselves and forge a closer school community. Community is at the heart of our school and by encouraging the older year groups to work and mentor the younger years we can create an environment where everyone feels supported, loved and included. I look forward to the challenges this role brings and look to have a close and collaborative relationship with the deputy heads, heads of houses and senior leadership team where we can work towards reaching decisions that will take the school forward for the better.
As we start a new or conclude a journey in this new academic year, I will endeavour to encourage all students to live our mission statement “Confident in God's love for us, we commit ourselves to his service.” Our “Outstanding School” is not only a place that strives for academic excellence but ensures success is celebrated no matter how big or how small the achievement.
