Dear Mrs McDevitt and Year 6,
I am really hoping you will be able to help me?
Since we returned to school a few weeks ago I have noticed there are a few things that need improving around school but I don’t really know where to start!
Last week I had a chat with your class about applying for the roles of Head Boy and Head Girl as well as School Council and the responsibilities involved… I’m hoping they are ready and willing to apply as I could really do with their help and I’m in desperate need of some fresh ideas J.
I look forward to reading through the applications and along with yourself, Mr Jordan and Mrs Rynott, can’t wait to pick our ‘dream team’ of proactive, thoughtful and fun to be around candidates.
Good luck everybody – remember you all have amazing qualities to offer so make your application stand out!
