My name is Tatiana Cooke. I joined the school in Year 7 and I am currently studying History, Maths and Mandarin at A level. All the Head Girls represent the student body at school events, from helping out at Careers Evenings, to giving speeches at Open Days.
Our Head Girl team has split into two, with Orla and I in change of giving and organising tours for prospective parents and students, as well as members of FOPHS or the GDST. We also all have a meeting with Mrs Longstaff every Thursday to discuss more ideas about how to improve the school and ways to relieve the stress of students, especially during exam periods.
I was honoured to be chosen for the Head Girl team as, ever since my first year at Putney, I have looked up to the Head Girls. I therefore think it is important to be a role model within the school for other students, as well as to listen, offer guidance and inspire students, creating a memorable environment.
I am really enjoying my time on the Head Girl team. I hope that I am able to continue to develop my leadership skills through the opportunities the Head Girl team is available to, including the recent leadership conference to Bath. I also hope to continue and try my hardest to make sure that younger members of our school are able to enjoy themselves in an environment where they can flourish.
