Deputy Head Girl 2016

Chant'e can trace her interest in the concept of leadership back to when she was chosen to be part of the StandTall Choice Foundation, a programme designed to encourage and support young people to become leaders.

Other leadership opportunities have arisen at school on the Student Council, and as part of the Yes Business Enterprise and Duke of Edinburgh Award programme. Chant'e has managed to combine her school work with a part-time job so she can help support her family.

She has received excellent results in Drama, Japanese and English and hopes to study towards a career in the creative technologies industry.

"An empathetic and diligent student, Chant'e has a great deal of pride in everything she does," said Year 12 Dean Kylee Houpapa.
