ACADEMICS: Meet your 2021-22 Co-Heads!
After student elections took place in September, for the first time in Grammar history, Halifax Grammar School has two female Co-Heads! Congratulations to Britt Drysdale '22 and Jessica Lee '22 for being elected the Grammar Student Council Co-Heads for the 2021-2022 school year.
Below is their first message to the community:
We're Britt and Jess, Grammar's Co-Heads for the 2021-2022 school year. Having both attended the school for quite some time now, we're extremely proud to be a part of a community wherein every individual comes together as part of a whole; despite the pandemic, the past two years have been no exception. While they've posed challenges to us as a school, we're immensely appreciative of the efforts given by our faculty and teachers, which have allowed Grammarians to maintain school togetherness and stay close from afar. While we recognize that we may still need to operate under strange circumstances, we believe that, as a community, we are more than capable of taking them in stride in order to have a truly special year. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it's that things are not to be taken for granted; this year, we aspire to celebrate the togetherness that makes our community truly Grammarian by incorporating school-wide events on our One Grammar campus while keeping safety a top priority. We're looking forward to not just bringing back old Grammar traditions, but creating new ones to look forward to and giving every student a reason to be excited for school every day. Beyond aiming to foster growing togetherness as a community, however, we wish for each individual at school to flourish and showcase how well-rounded a Grammarian can be. The school's pillars provide the foundations upon which every student may step out of their comfort zone and engage themselves by joining a club or team or even starting one of their own, so we challenge you, Grammarians, to try something new and develop a new side of yourself. We anticipate seeing where the year takes us, but above all, we can't wait to give back to a community that teaches us not only to excel as students, but people as well. Let's have a great year!
