On the AWSUM couch with Greenwood Bay College’s head girl for 2021
Meet Greenwood Bay College’s head girl for 2021: Georgia Garnett
Congratulations on being selected as a leader at your school. What are you looking forward to the most during your term as leader? Being able to spend more time and communicate more with Mr Kuhn (GBC Principal), also the opportunity to open up more of a doorway between staff and students.
What are your strengths and weaknesses? Strengths: I am a decision maker. I can be a leader but also work as part of a team and follow someone who possibly has better ideas than I do. Weakness: I can easily be annoyed by disrespect towards others, I need to practice tolerance.
Is there anything you would like to change at your school? The first thing I would like to change is introducing traditions into the lower grades all the way through to Matric.
What do you love the most about your school? The one-on-one communication with teachers, their commitment and willingness to be involved with us on an individual level as well as being invested in us as a group.
Matric is your final year, from an academic point of view, what are you aiming for? I am aiming for an A in my subjects, but due to Art and Design having such a stringent portfolio, I would be happy with a lower grade.
What will your message of encouragement be for your prefects/co-leaders? Although decisions will be hard sometimes, it still means that they are right, and it’s not the end of the world if someone is not impressed with you for making them. Stand up for what’s right even in the face of adversity.
Who is your role model? My parents they balance each other out. My dad inspires me to stand for what’s right and always persevere. My mom supports and encourages me.
What are your plans after matric in 2022? I am going to Somerset West to do a 3-year diploma in events management.
If you could be any superhero, who would you be and why? Elasta Woman, because of her flexibility and versatility.
On a regular Saturday, you will find me at the beach with my boyfriend.
