Dear Mr Angell-Jones,
I am writing to apply for the chance to be a senior prefect. There are numerous reasons as to why I would be honoured for the chance to forfill the role. Firstly I feel that it is a position that comes with great responsibility which will be beneficial in the future for CVs and will appeal to employees and Universities. Also as I have been a member of Treorchy Comprehensive school for around six years I think that becoming a senior prefect will give me another opportunity to contribute to the school and take a more active role within the school community. Since my younger years at the school I have always looked up to the Sixth form students for support and guidance. I would like the chance myself, to help younger students as I feel I am approachable and caring. After recieving my GCSE results where I exceeded my target grades in a majority of subjects I realised that I wanted to become a senior prefect to give back to the school that has improved my learning incredibly. I think that I am ideal for the role as I have been an active participant during my time at the school. I've aided teachers in numerous open evenings and parents evenings and took part in assemblies on several occaisions. Aswell as internally I have also taken part in a lot of external volunteering work in my community. At a younger age I took part in the "Building Bridges" programme at Ysbyty George Thomas hospital. The project involved visiting the dimensia clinic once a week to spend time and interact with the elderly. Also during my GCSE study period I visited my primary school (Pen Pych) and worked volunteering for three weeks at the creche' and just generally helped out with any jobs needed. I feel these are good qualities to have as it shows that I not only work in school but am a helpful member of my community and thrive off working with other people of all ages. Hopefully the qualities I've picked up volunteering can be transferred into a school environment....
