Being Head Boy has been the highlight of my final year at Laxton Junior School.
Of course, the responsibility is enormous but there have been so many different aspects to the role that I have enjoyed and those have made it all worthwhile.
One of the first moments of pride was laying the wreath at the Oundle Service of Remembrance in November.
We represented LJS at the parade and laid a wreath on behalf of the whole LJS community at the war memorial.
It was particularly moving as it was the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. I have also enjoyed showing visitors round the School.
They always have so many questions and I have really enjoyed showing off all the fun things that are on offer here. Being part of the School Council has also meant a lot to me.
I love the fact that we are able to come up with ideas
and put them forward and, most of the time, something really positive comes out of our meetings.
The most amusing time during the year was when Mr Robertson,
Daisy, Luca, Persia and I danced in front of the whole School at ‘Crash into Christmas’.
It was not just a highlight of the year for me; it was one of the funniest things in my whole time at LJS.
During my time as Head Boy, I have tried to be a good role model for children in the younger years.
As I leave, I would like to encourage them to be kind and helpful to others.
The things I will miss about Laxton Junior School are the House Competitions,
especially Sports Day, Speech Day with all its grandeur, and, of course, the teachers.
Finally, my one piece of advice to the whole School would be: be yourself, be confident and make every opportunity count Matthew Borley From
the moment I heard my name being called to collect my Head Girl’s badge, I knew, at once, what a wonderful experience being Head Girl was going to be.
The best parts of having this amazing opportunity were Matthew and I being given our very own assembly. We were asked to talk about ‘Community’, one of the LJS Values.
It was quite a scary experience but we really enjoyed preparing for it and, in the end, it wasn’t as nerve-wracking as we’d anticipated.
Laying a wreath at the war memorial in Oundle was also a highlight for me;
I felt so proud to be representing our School in front of the whole town community.
