My family and I really like to travel. Some of the places we have been to are Italy, Spain, Greece, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Japan. My favourite place was Italy because of the food and architecture.

Hi everyone! I’m honoured to have been elected as one of my cohort’s Student Council representatives for the second year running. As a council, we hope to ensure that student voice is emphasised as a crucial step in making school-wide decisions.
