Anna Meller has attended Bangkok Patana School since Year 1, spending her final year on campus as one of the Senior Delegates. The strengths Anna has brought to her role include leadership, proactiveness and a willingness to talk to others in an effort to get things done. She explains that in order to be a good Senior Delegate, it is important to be a ‘do-er’, as Year 13 is incredibly busy and the Senior Delegates help to achieve things quickly.
Anna explained that throughout Terms 1 and 2, the Senior Delegates aimed to bridge the gap between Senior students and students in Key Stages 3 and 4. They created a ‘Senior Sibling’ programme that connected Student Delegates with a Senior Delegate counterpart “in order to create more of a community within Secondary”. She shared her enthusiasm about the programme’s success, further noting that it helped to develop genuine friendships as well.
