At Whitehouse, we are keen to provide pupils with opportunities to have a say in the decisions which affect them.
This is done through regular survey as well as through a number of pupil-representing bodies such as the School Parliament, the Prefects, the House Captains, the RRSA Team, the Eco-Committee, the Science Ambassadors, the Sports Prefects, the Library Assistants and the Online Safety Ambassadors.
Involving pupils in the life of the school enable them to feel valued and provides them with opportunities to develop important life skills such as communication, problem solving, team work, leadership etc which will serve them well in adult life.
Pupil representatives are recruited either through applying for a position (Prefects, Online Safety Officers, Sports Prefects, Eco-Committee and Library Assistants) or by being voted in (School Parliament, House Captains) This gives students the chance to learn more about the recruitment process as well as about Democracy.
It is never too early to talk to children about what they want to be in the future and what is involved in applying for a job.
Advice on how you could help your child choose his/her future career can be found below.
