HEAD PUPIL- Aafreen Rehman
I have been at Hazel Oak for a long time now. Since being here, I have improved socialising with others. At school, the things that make me happy are: reading; listening to music; playing the drums; being honest. I am not afraid to state my opinion and I am always determined to finish tasks. I don’t mind public speaking if I had to do it. Hazel Oak is good at identifying next steps in learning for students. Teachers are friendly and supportive. As Head Pupil, I feel that it is important to have tasty and healthy food, although I understand that schools have budget constraints. I therefore aim to support the kitchen staff with this.
DEPUTY HEAD PUPIL- Harry Naughton
I started at Hazel Oak in primary phase and I am now in Year 11. Before attending Hazel Oak, I did not talk much, but now, with lessons like Philosophy for Children, my communication skills have improved. I feel that Hazel Oak is a suitable environment for our students and staff are both supportive and encouraging. They are especially good at building confidence, and on a personal note, this has helped me to push myself. As Deputy Head Pupil, my main aim is to support students with travel training. I feel that confidence in this area will help students to become more independent and is a stepping stone to maturity.
