I’m Antonia and I study English Literature, Drama and Spanish. I want to study English at University and then possibly going on to Drama school. I have been a PHS girl since I was 4 years old (purple veteran), which is a testament to how nurturing and supportive this community is.
As a Deputy Head Girl you have to be assertive, an excellent listener and open minded when introducing other’s ideas. I will not only bring determination to this role, but also attempt to relieve school-related-stress by being available to talk to and give advice on how to relax and feel comfortable within your environment.
Everyone is a valued member of the school, and it is good to be recognised as somebody who can be a voice for others. In doing so, I hope to bring the best out of everyone, andhelp the school thrive. The position is prestigious, and I’m honoured to be a part of such a fabulous team, made up of great girls, each with individual talents in different areas.
Above all, I would love to witness Putney embrace more diverse topics and clubs including more educational activities outside of lessons, pressing on issues surrounding young people’s mental health and social media.
I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know many of the girls in younger year groups, and I want to provide the same opportunities, if not more, to future generations of students as it’s such a key factor in creating an empathetic, communicative environment.
