Head Boy & Head Girl

Hello, my name is Tom McCormick and I am honoured to have been given the privilege of being Head Boy this year at Antrim Grammar School.

Throughout my time at AGS, I have been instilled with a great zeal for learning and building relationships with my classmates and teachers. Through our school’s ongoing commitment to currency, character and culture, I have learnt the true value of hard work and ambition as well as the importance of our school’s spirit that everyone is valued. The aspect of family and the idea of everyone contributing to our success are key at Antrim Grammar School and provide a supportive and empowering environment. From the constant support and encouragement of my peers and teachers, I have developed confidence in my leadership, teamwork and communication skills as well as a real passion for school life.

My goal this year, as Head Boy, is to make a difference to our school by inspiring pupils to have a mind to be kind and to get involved in school life at AGS. I really look forward to working with the Senior Prefect Team and Senior Management Team this year as well as suggesting improvements which will enhance the nurturing and collaborative atmosphere in our school.

 

Hello, my name is Lucia Pandolfi, and I am thrilled to be Head Girl for 2022/23 academic year.

At Antrim Grammar School we are encouraged to focus on our character and face challenges, allowing us to develop into the best version of ourselves. I have built strong relationships in school with my peers and teachers, who all support me in achieving my goals. The teachers are very helpful and strive for everyone to reach their full potential. Through extra-curricular activities such as hockey, I have learnt many additional skills like good communication and teamwork, which will help me throughout my life and will have a positive impact on my future career.

This year as Head Girl, I aim to be a role model for all the students in school, and to have a positive impact on the AGS community. By working alongside the pupils and the teachers I hope to suggest new ideas that could enhance our school even more. I am delighted to be given this role and I can’t wait to see what the year holds for everyone at AGS.
