Head Girl: Saher Elgmati
Hi! I am Saher Elgmati and I am Head Girl. Currently, I am studying A-Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics and following Sixth Form, I am planning to study Medicine at university to become a doctor in the future.
Throughout my time at de Ferrers, I have consistently engaged myself within the school community. I have participated in Student Voice and volunteered to help with Open Evenings and the Annual Senior Citizen's Party as well as the Ryman National Enterprise Challenge and much more. Collectively, all my experience in previous years have rendered me with a wide array of skills that I believe will help me with my current role.
Being selected for the position of Head Girl is a privilege that I will embrace eagerly, I am thankful to be able to act as a role model for the younger students and represent the entire academy. As Head Student, I hope to encourage a growth of community and establish strong inter-year links across all three sites. I’d love to see students interact more socially to build relationships as it'll encourage respect between others. Also, I would like me and my Academy Head Team to become a valued interface between students and teachers, where we will work together and listen to students to achieve that.
Furthermore, through my own personal experiences, entailing the fact that I’m a muslim North African Arab, more specifically Libyan, I would like to be an active voice for and represent all students of minority backgrounds in being able to relate to them. Along with my Head team, we would like to inspire students to be ambitious and to aspire to be part of the future Head Teams and that no matter your background, anything’s possible with the correct motivation and dedication.
