Tobias Ollerenshaw – Student Governor
When you think of a student, you may think of someone who has not yet reached their full potential, someone that is learning the skills that can set them on a path for a successful future. While this is partially true, I want to help students at Beauchamp be more than this perception. I want the time they spend at this college to be spent learning, not only academically, but also personally as for them to become the best possible versions of themselves that they can.
I have identified two key ways in which to achieve this goal alongside the many other aims we hope to achieve collectively as governors and ambassadors:
- The first would be to educate students on the provisions by the school to keep mentally healthy. It is clear lockdown has been very stressful for many people and it is for this reason each Beauchamp student needs to know how to help themselves and others in this regard.
- The second is to encourage a healthy lifestyle as keeping fit can have great impact on a person’s mental health as well as being a way to unwind and allow for time away from life’s many toils.
A further aim of mine is to increase knowledge around university entrance exams as it was something I had very little knowledge on myself and I feel it can help many students with their career progression.
I hope by progressing towards these goals I can help to build a culture around the college, one that cares about others and further that can have a positive impact on our community and the world as a whole.
