    Hey everyone!
    So basically it's come to the time where everyone is allowed to apply for Captain/Prefect roles.
    My sixth form is also a senior school and I am unfortunatly an external student who came form another school and joined the sixth form this year.
    Because I've only been at the school a year I have not been able to help the school in any way, so I just wanted your help in ideas for what I could write.

    In my previous school I was head of the school council and also a senior prefect, so I am capable for the role.
    I study Further Maths, Drama, Chemistry and ICT. I have helped my friends with their maths work previously, but was not an offical mentor, so I wondered if I could include this

    Any help would be appreciated, I copied the email we got sent today to give you and idea of the role.
