Meet our new Senior Student Leaders
We have now appointed our two new Senior Student Leaders for September: Isabella Jenkin and Shahmeer Mashood. They are looking forward to representing the student body at different events throughout the next academic year.
"In my role as Senior Student Leader, I am keen to collaborate with fellow student leaders and listen to my fellow students to ensure a student voice that promotes everybody's positive ideas for NLS. I also intend to encourage wellbeing, extracurricular and academic opportunities. To facilitate wellbeing, I'd like to implement a mindfulness initiative in tutor groups and encourage peer mentoring.
My ideas for extracurricular and academic opportunities include creating a debating club, that will equip students with advocacy skills and creating a bulletin board to notify students of clubs, work experience and extra curricular opportunities."
"Becoming student leader has opened up a relationship with students, ranging across all the year groups, whereby I can represent the student body as a voice. Further, I will be working closely with the other student leaders to be a relatable role model for not only my peers but all students."
"During my new role I will work towards progressing charity events, emphasising the rewards system and advocate for even more extracurricular activities. As a part of my initial presentation, I established the idea of an expansion of the culture day held at sixth form; to a whole school level, due to the overall large success it was for sixth formers. I will also work towards opening up more leadership opportunities for students lower down the school, in terms of organising and helping out with initiatives that I and other student leaders will facilitate.
