A MESSAGE FROM OUR LEADERS
I have been at St Andrew’s for five years, and every year I have learned something valuable about myself. High school can be an intimidating experience; however, I found a community at St Andrew’s that made sure that I became comfortable with my authentic self. St Andrew’s encouraged me to realise the importance of having a voice and being a good global citizen. Owing to my high school experience, I now feel confident in my social standing as a young woman. Furthermore, the friendships that I have acquired over the years have been my biggest support structures. St Andrean girls are sincerely remarkable and have created a sisterhood that is welcoming and steadfast. The memories that I have made in the classroom, on the sports field, and in the boarding house will certainly be impactful for the rest of my life. I am determined to continue to uplift St Andrew’s and ensure that every girl who comes after me experiences a similarly enjoyable experience and truly becomes ‘Skilled for Life’.
Deputy Head Girl
I have been at St Andrew’s since I was two years old, and every day I am grateful for the gifts it has brought me and the lessons I have learned from this institution. Throughout my years here, I have been exposed to a multitude of blessings: from the grounds’ staff who ensure everything is upheld perfectly; to the teachers who pour their heart into what they do and inspire us; as well as the beautiful school itself. The girls who attend this school are my favourite part of it – they have made my schooling experience so memorable and have helped me get through every single day. It is all these factors that have shaped me to be who I am, and for that, I am immensely thankful. I have felt encouraged to do my very best and I know this will assist me in my future. I am truly appreciative of the opportunities St Andrew’s has given me in so many aspects. What I will treasure the most is the sisterhood I was privileged enough to experience, and I know that St Andrew’s has allowed me to make friendships that will continue long after high school.
High school in real life is nothing like the movies as I thought it would be… it’s far better! The movies fail to emphasise the fact that school becomes a home from home for all – a place to learn not only academically but in all spheres: academically, socially, and personally. It is a gateway to a collection of opportunities. It is a community and sisterhood where you can come as you are. At the very least, this is what St Andrew’s has been for me. I feel privileged to be able to attend this school whose beauty is reflected in the attitudes of staff and girls as well as physically reflected in the exquisite grounds. I am greatly appreciative of having been through trials which St Andrew’s has taught me to overcome and evolve into triumphs – ‘Per Angusta ad Augusta’!
