student continued “When I looked around, no

Head Boy Tolga. Leader or Loser?


Tolga Kuyucuoglu has ambitious plans for the future of our sixth form, but will he overcome the major hurdles that he approaches?

The CHFS senior student put his leadership skills to the test, when he organised his first event, Valentines Week, for all the school sweet
hearts. The week consisted of smaller events such as Cake selling, Rose Selling and a Leg waxing event for the 6th form. His commitment
for the sixth form definitely showed as £130 was raised, which is planned to be shared between the sixth form and for our end of year
prom.
The plans for prom, represents the biggest shake-up in CHFS prom history, as the Head boy has ideas of moving away from Wool-
ston manor, the place where prom has taken place for years, to somewhere in central London, specifically The Venue Constellation. He
still has several obstacles to clear before he can sign his decision into the Sixth form books.
Tolga continues to plan a better sixth form, as he has also been ‘gathering ideas to change the common room-to provide a more
comfortable environment with the money raised and continue raising’. He tackles a prime situation which many have tried and failed, but
we shall see the outcomes by midsummer.
So, is the new senior student a leader or loser? You be the judge.

Student call for staff ID Badges (Continued from Page 1)

Although this implementation of the ID badges is in the best interests of the students,
and their safety, many pupils are not satisfied with the fact in one respect teachers
themselves don’t wear any form of ID. Are random adults too not a threat to ones
safety? With the number of student teachers working in the school, and builders work-
ing in multiple areas around the school, clear identification is a bigger issue than just
the sixth form.
6th form tutor Vicki Edwards says ‘I think everyone should wear them as it pro-
motes, and gives a sense of belonging, encouraging students to wear them also. It
would be a good idea to introduce them lower down the school and that it will stop
teacher student conflict’.
6th form receptionist Mrs Gough said ‘I don’t know everybody and when I see
some people I am not rude to them, but I say who are you? Redbridge college security
guards will not let anyone in at all if they do not present ID – even teachers! Mrs Leem-
ing said ‘when I go to my sons opening evening every teacher has an ID badge saying,
who they are and what they teach’. Although this approach will cost a little bit of
money, this could
Student Peace Oseyenum says ‘We always wait until something bad happens Smarten up the
before enforcing rules. For example we are currently made to wear ID badges because
of an incident that took place in lower school a couple of weeks ago. Therefore teach-
ers should be made to wear ID badges now to prevent any future incidents’.
