New Head Girl Team at Sheffield High
Sheffield High School students Anita, Elizabeth and Guneet are celebrating as they start their new term of office as the head girl team at Sheffield High School.
The girls have been selected to head up the Sixth Form Prefect team through a combined vote by their peers and the teaching staff at the school and they started taking on the role as ambassadors for the school on their return from AS-level external examinations this month.
Head girl Anita Chandran, aged 17, from Dore in Sheffield is studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry and English Literature. She is aiming to go on to read Natural sciences or Physics and would love to go to Cambridge or Imperial College London. Anita is a committed member of several music ensembles at school but she also loves to read and write. “I hope to bring the student body together and be there for whoever needs me”, said Anita.
Guneet Kohli, aged 17, from Shiregreen, Sheffield is studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and History and is hoping to study Aerospace Engineering with Pilot Instruction at university. Guneet enjoys a wide variety of hobbies including drama, piano, reading, history, travelling and volunteering. “I really enjoyed the recent Balloon Project with the Physics Department, where we sent a balloon into space to take readings, as space and mechanics really interest me”, said Guneet, who would like to establish more links between the different year groups and encourage similar extra-curricular projects for students to get involved in. “I’m absolutely thrilled that my fellow peers and teachers thought I would be a suitable Deputy Head Girl and voted for me. I can’t wait to start!”
Elizabeth Swain, also aged 17, travels to Sheffield High School from Warmsworth in Doncaster. She is aiming to study medicine after her A-levels in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Spanish. She is currently training for the London Marathon in 2013 where she will be linking her running with her love of fund raising. Elizabeth runs a successful cupcake business and is a regular helper in school in projects such as SHINE and the Peer Mentoring Project to help teenagers. “I aim to develop the positive closely-knit community within life in the Sixth Form and the rest of the school,” said the new Deputy Head Girl.
