Student leaders share their thoughts on a new scho

by Anonymous Author

Darfield High School’s new school year is in full swing, with new student leaders taking up the reins. Those leaders share their thoughts and hopes for the 2018 school year.

My name is George Brown and I’m proud to be one of Darfield High School’s Head Prefects for 2018. I would like to use my role to help improve not only Darfield High School, but also the rest of the community. So far this year, our prefect team has had many new and interesting ideas that will benefit the school and our greater community. One in particular, is an interschool talent quest where the finalists from each school will compete against each other in an epic showdown of supreme talent.

Another occasion I’m really looking forward to is helping run the 40 hour famine. This is always a terrific event because people from all areas of the school participate together to benefit those in need. My hobbies often involve the water: fly fishing for trout in our local waterways and freediving on Banks Peninsula, and I’ve recently taken up surfing. 

I also trap possums primarily to control pest numbers and give the wildlife a helping hand.

If anyone wishes to contact me with advice or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you, please email me at:

My name is Katie Sharp, and I am lucky enough to be Head Girl at Darfield High School for 2018. For those of you who do not know me, I have been a student here at DHS since year seven (2012) and you may possibly have seen me meow my way through last year’s school production (The Wizard of Oz) as the Cowardly Lion. It seems unreal that I am in year 13 already. I believe this year is going to go extremely fast, but I am so excited to see what it is going to bring. Together with the other awesome head students and a great group of prefects, I am confident that 2018 is going to be a year full of new and exciting things! If you want to get in touch to give us some more ideas, need advice on projects or would just like to say hello, send me an email at and I will get back to you as soon as possible. I am always around the school, here there and everywhere. So in saying that, come and say hello! I am a Cowardly Lion after all, I won’t bite. Let’s make 2018 a great year! Work hard, but hav  some fun.

My name’s Caleb Banks and I am your Deputy Head boy for 2018. My jobs include writing on the chalk board with Niamh, running the Darfield High School Student Volunteer army and just generally helping out in any way I can.

If you see me around the school and have any questions about school life or just want to have a chat, feel free to come up and say hello, or flick me an email or message on social media and I’ll be happy to help in any way possible. Looking forward to sharing a great 2018 with you.

I’m Niamh, the Deputy Head Girl at DHS for 2018. This year I will be helping manage some of the tasks around the school, such as the blackboard, Student Volunteer Army, and school website, as well as being involved in the sports committee. The team of prefects on board this year is awesome and looking to do the best for all students, so any ideas that will help us achieve this are appreciated and will help maximise the work we will do. When you see me around school, I’m always open for a chat.
