Tena Koutou Katoa,

We are Ryan Thomson and Phoebe Turner, the Head Students of Upper Hutt College for 2018. We are both honoured and beyond humbled to lead our school alongside our outstanding leadership team. We cannot think of a more rewarding way to spend our final year of college than having the opportunity to give back to a school that has made us both incredibly privileged.

We already have a huge amount of pride and passion for our school and its incredible community, with an amazing team of staff, our leadership team and our fellow peers. Which makes us determined to introduce fresh, new and exciting ideas to the school as well as building and developing on the ideas the great head students of the past have left. In concurrence to this, we wish to further strengthen our school pride and spirit for a positive environment the moment you step foot into our campus.

We both have an honest desire to wholeheartedly ensure that every student feel they are supported to have the best possible experience at Upper Hutt College. Our extensive extra curricular programme encourages a sense of belonging and gives students the ability to pursue an area of passion and learning outside of the classroom. Upper Hutt College gives students an immense amount of opportunity across a wide range of activities which includes sports, culture, the arts, service and leadership.

It is not only a goal, but a priority that we are here to listen and encourage a sense of belonging, as well as working hard to promote our schools key values. We are all apart of the blue and yellow colours that make up our school and we should never forget that.

We aspire to be empowering, encouraging and inspiring role models to our Upper Hutt College community and wish to all, a successful and memorable 2018.

Whaia te iti kahurangi ki te tuohu koe me he maunga teitei!
