Y11 Presentation Evening - Head Boy's inspirational speech

Hello and welcome!

Thank you all for coming to Presentation Evening tonight and thank you to all the teachers and staff for making this evening possible.

 I would like to start off by saying on behalf of year 11 a massive thank you to all the teachers, staff and other members of the school community who have helped and supported us during such as valuable time in our lives.

I am going to be speaking briefly on why I think Fairfield has been so valuable for us.

Fairfield as a school has a massive emphasis on celebrating identity, diversity and individuality. Fairfield has students from such a diverse range of classes, races, cultures, genders, sexualities and languages.  This diversity has given us the opportunity to make friends with people from different identities and backgrounds, and I know that this is something we are really grateful for.

In Bristol,  we can easily take this diversity and individuality for granted but the lessons about identity and diversity that Fairfield have taught us, not just in the classroom, are priceless lessons, especially during a time with so much media attention on global injustice and terror.  The ability to interact and communicate with a wide range of people is massively important in life in general. For me, this is one of the most important things Fairfield gives to its students and is a skill which will remain with us for the rest of our lives.

Fairfield has nurtured our own individual talents and passions. The sheer quantity of opportunities that the school has provided to us in order to progress and improve our own passions and interests has been unbelievable. Sports clubs and teams, Performing Art musicals and galas, Dance, Drama and music, Community outreach and charity work, Debates, Science Weeks, STEM trips and subject-specific workshops;  Fairfield has provided us with opportunities and has nurtured our talents in so many areas throughout our school  years.

Therefore, Fairfield has provided us with valuable experiences and opportunities in order to be successful and achieve in whatever we choose to do. It is now up to us as young adults to take this experience into the next step in our lives, whether that be college, apprenticeship, work etc.

Finally, I would just like to thank everyone for coming and participating in what I’m sure you will agree is a fantastic night. Thank you and I would like to wish good luck to everyone in the future in whatever they choose to do. 

FHS wishes all our Y11s a happy and successful future.
