Our Head Students for the 2019/20 academic year are Shaun Lye and Gia Tan.
Hi! I am Shaun Lye and I have been going to BSG since Year 3. I am one of your Head Students for the 2019-2020 academic year. I currently study History, Computer Science, Maths, and Physics.
In my free time, I really enjoy playing sports and BSG has provided me many opportunities to do so, with football, basketball, and volleyball matches happening throughout the year. One of the reasons BSG is such a special school to me is because it not only focuses on academics, but also learning outside of the classroom. There are so many extracurricular activities you can sign up for, and the school always encourages students to step outside of their comfort zones and to be ambitious.
This has resulted to me being much more of an adventurous person than I was at the start of my time here. I want to help students the same way BSG helped me, by inspiring them to try new things, and expand their learning both inside and out the classroom walls.
Throughout the year, we will collate the ideas of the student voice, and relay them to the SSLT during our meetings. Having been here for such a long time, I have seen BSG develop every single year, and I hope to continue that by doing my part as a Head Student.
Hi, my name is Gia and I’m currently studying English, Geography, Maths and Economics at A Levels. I have been at BSG since Year 6, starting from 2013. Having been through Secondary School here, I have had so much time to grow academically and creatively through all the opportunities available, including sports, music, and production. I’ve always admired the leaders and role models in BSG, and I’m so excited to represent the student body and carry out their ideas that will ultimately make school life even more enjoyable.
The teachers at BSG are so supportive with everything that we do, so I’m looking forward to working with them, as well as the Student Leadership Committee. However, the student voice is the heart of every idea and concept proposed to the school and I’d like to stress that that our roles don’t work without them, and that it is our job to make sure everybody’s opinions are taken into consideration.
We’ll be aiming to expand all aspects of extracurricular activities, to give the students a better learning experience outside of the classroom. I hope this inspires students to get themselves involved as much as possible, the same way it inspired me.
