Head Girl – 2021-22

Hello, I am Head Girl at Ribbon Academy. I am 10 years old, but I will be turning 11 in July 2022. I am friendly and helpful; nothing is ever too much for me.

I like gymnastics, art and reading. My biggest passion is spelling because it fits with one of my favourite subjects, English. I know I am the best candidate for this senior role in Year 6 because I have so many skills and qualities.

I believe I demonstrate and embody all the Ribbon Virtues – Resilience, Excellence, Self-awareness, Positivity, Empathy, Communication, and Teamwork. I am always willing to help with work and if you are feeling worried, you can always count on me as Head Girl.

I look forward to supporting you as we move into a period of much needed normality.

‘We are so grateful to all the effort the teachers are putting in.’
