Although this year’s leadership has definitely been a challenge, we as a group were able to create bonds with students, staff and administration that we will never forget. Not only did we manage to create these valuable relationships, we believe that our increased visibility has put student leadership at the forefront of everyday life at WIC. With the support of the staff and administration, we were able to work together to plan fun events and activities for the student body, assure that the voices of students were heard and, hopefully, have created a school year to remember!
Despite the fact that we all had different experiences in leadership before joining the prefect team, whether that be WIAIH, Interact club, house council or sports teams/ECA, we were able to unite as one and strive towards improving the student life at WIC. As the future leaders of WIC, dear Sec 1 to Sec 4 students, there are many opportunities to get involved in leadership and impact the WIC community. So, whatever your past participation looks like, as the proud graduates of 2021, we strongly encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and get involved to help continually improve our WIC.
Finally, we wanted to make our graduating year the best year it can be, and leadership has allowed us to have an impact on our experiences, both through planning activities and letting ourselves step out of our comfort zones to truly improve our final year. We are confident that, as leaders during our five years at WIC, we are leaving a lasting legacy. But know well that you don’t have to wait until your last year to become a contributing and caring student leader at WIC. There is still so much that can be done, so why not start now? We hope that you take the initiative and get involved to make a difference in 2021-22 and beyond.
Have a great weekend!
