2024 Head Student Announcement

Posted on September 19, 2023

We are so pleased to introduce our new Head Students for 2024, Eve Cooper and Charlie Bradford!

Eve has been at The Friends’ School since Year 5 and has been involved in many co-curricular experiences – from various music ensembles, service activities, sporting teams and different academic opportunities. During her time as a Head Student, Eve hopes to be the ‘bridge’ by communicating with people and providing a voice.

In her speech, Eve said:

I would love to lead by building strong relationships between year levels, and to create a strong sense of connectedness across the school. The importance of holding strong relationships with others is a key part of the Quaker value of simplicity – focusing on what is truly important. Knowing of the changes that are happening next year, supporting these connections across the school is something I believe is really important.

Charlie has been at The Friends’ School since Year 7 and has successfully balanced being a Year 11 Rep and Music Rep, achieving good academic results, involved with sport and music, setting up a school wide compost system, has over 130 hours of service, while still having time for catching with friends.

In his speech, Charlie shared what he is passionate about achieving next year:

Keeping the school aligned with our Quaker values, enhancing intercampus communication, boosting house spirit and organising more engaging events, bringing back the school musical, incorporating fun activities during ‘opportunity blocks’, and enhancing our school’s diversity and discrimination program, to name just a few. However, what I care about most is improving the experience of everyone within and connected to The Friends’ School. I firmly believe that effective leaders, within a sound system, can collaborate to find solutions that benefit all.

We are so excited to see the wonderful examples of Leadership that these two young people will bring to their Head Student roles.
