Hello guys, yesterday we were told that we had to create a head boy speech for Tuesday. I'm sure you all know what this is 😁
She said its part of our GCSE but not associated with lit or lang, and is a seperatr mark which is still displayed with the others.
But, I'm gonna fail, she gave us 3 main points to talk about:
•vision for the future
•my qualities (why I would be a good head boy)
•the schools problems
I have no qualities that would make me a good head boy, normally I'm extremely quiet, and will not take the role of a leader, and I don't really talk to many people outside of my circle. I'm not sporty, or academically excelling, so really I don't have much that would let me make the speech.
As for problems and visions for the future, there is a standard few that everyone else is doing, which means there would be nothing to "set me apart", or make especially well.
Is there any hope?...
Just make it up! You're not actually applying, so create a 'perfect head boy' character and give the presentation in that character. Be prepared to answer questions afterward though.
Or you could flip convention and say that your quietness actually makes you a great leader as you'll put other people first, you're not in it for the limelight etc.
