A TALENTED team of Saddleworth School pupils have been selected as head boy, head girl and assistants for 2015/16.
Ira Wall and Emine Cakir will represent the school as head boy and head girl, supported by deputies Sam Darke-Williams and Lydia Hood.
They will be backed by a team of four assistants – Catherine Stott, Isobel Hallam, Will Bartley and Tom Kehoe – along with 80 prefects.
The Year 10 students went through a rigorous selection process, which included being nominated by form tutors before teachers voted for a shortlist of eight.
Then they gave a presentation to their year group about a leader they found inspiring before pupils voted and they were also interviewed by headmaster Mr Milburn.
The eight candidates should have been reduced to four but Miss Charlotte Campbell, Home School Leader for Year 10, revealed it was too hard to pick between them.
She commented: “I am really proud of all of them and how well they approached the process. The standard was so high and it was impossible to choose between them.
“Their talents cover all areas of expertise, from sports to music and drama, and they will all be a credit to the school.”
Their roles will include organising the 80 prefects, working as anti-bullying ambassadors in the school, arranging rotas and organising the school prom next summer.
