Our Head Students for the 2017/18 academic year are Henk deBoer and Neil Verdia.
Welcome to the British School of Guangzhou! I am Henk-Jan De Boer and I have been at BSG for 2 years now. For my AS subjects, I am taking History, Economics, Maths and Physics. In those years at BSG, I have taken part in many different opportunities that the school has provided, such as the school production and the sports teams. These opportunities allowed me to practice some of my hobbies, like playing football, volleyball and participating in “Sweeney Todd”. This year, as Head Student, my role is to provide those opportunities for other students and to represent the students in the school. Neil and I will also be communicating a lot between the different student bodies, such as the student council and the teachers, to ensure an even better learning experience for the students at the school.
All of the Student Leaders have developed significantly over the many years that they have been present at the school. Now we feel that it is our turn to guide our fellow students through the same experience to enrich their school experience here at BSG, by leading as examples and to portray the BSG core values. Also personally, I want to further develop the responsibility and integrity of the students.
Hello and welcome, to the British School of Guangzhou! My name is Neil Verdia and I have been in this great school since year 8 in 2013, but I am now in year 12 studying four A-level subjects: Physics, Maths, Further Maths, and Chemistry. Having been in BSG for over 4 years, I would like to say I have matured a lot since I first came here and made a lot of friends. I feel that the friendly and welcoming atmosphere in the school nurtures people really well and to be part of this positive ambiance has truly been a pleasure.
In the past I have held a number of leadership roles in the school already such as senior house captain, sports leader, and being my class representative in the student council. I would like to take this opportunity to take it a step ahead, take on more responsibility and be of greater assistance to the school and my fellow students.
The abundance of curricular and extra curricular activities offered to the students in BSG encourages their growth, both as good learners and good people. This furthermore inspires and develops a very positive and competitive environment at the school.
My role in being one of the Head Students covers the responsibility of leading the student body and representing their thoughts for the betterment of this school. So from now on the new School Council will be working in full swing and so will I. Looking forward to hearing and interacting with all of you soon!
