Heads up for the leading lights at Oakbank School
10:42am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Keighley
Oakbank pupils who have demonstrated an ability to show leadership and responsibility have been appointed to important roles at the school.
Fiona Berry, of the Keighley school’s enrichment team, said: “One of our duties for September was to select a head boy or girl, plus assistants, for each year group.
“This is similar to the old system when schools had prefects.
“As a school, we want to give students a chance to expand their CVs through a range of opportunities, and develop the qualities necessary to enhance their employability and life skills.
“The students had to write a letter of application and were then shortlisted for interview. The standard of applications was very high, with students demonstrating good leadership skills, confidence and maturity.”
