Following a rigorous interview process with Purcell’s Principal Paul Bambrough and members of the Senior Leadership Team, in which all candidates were outstanding, the School has appointed Zozi (Year 13) and Philip (Year 13) as our new Head Boy and Head Girl.
Joining them and completing the Prefect team are Bertie, Anelise, Jenny, Christian, Reese and Ella (all current Year 13).
As Purcell’s student representatives, the Heads of School and Prefect Team perform a crucial role within the school community. In the coming academic year they will run the School Council, bring student concerns to the Senior Leadership Team, represent the school at functions and events, and work to enhance the life of the School through social and other events.
In the presentation of their manifestos, Philip outlined a need to return to student socials; an increase of on-site recycling; revision of practice time and space; further boarding integration of day students; the development of student run clubs; greater student input into catering; and increased transparency between staff and students. Zozi’s aspirations for the school and student body included improving connectivity; increasing mutual respect and understanding between students and staff; diminishing the divisions between year groups and boarding houses; and encourging the building of a safe and respectful Purcell community.
