I would like to thank everyone for the opportunity to be a part of student executive, especially as head boy considering the talents and caliber of all those involved. The strength of our team lies not only with those in it, but those who aren’t. The countless number of other deserving candidates and students reinforces our determination and responsibility to make a difference as exec.
I think that I speak for everyone when I say that we are striving to be a cohesive team that is open and inclusive as we work in collaboration with students and staff alike to create opportunities and lasting change that will stay with the school long after we leave.
Along with everyone else, I am looking forward to this year. I am looking forward to working with the talents, experiences, cultures and people who make up the wonderfully diverse melting pot of Newlands College that I am proud to be a part of.
