We had a chat with the new Head Girl Harriet Butt and Head Boy Weropuna Witika to see what they are most excited about for the year ahead and what inspired them to be a student leader at King’s.

 

What are you most excited about for the year ahead?

Harriet Butt: I am looking forward to the connections that I will make with fellow students, staff, and others within the King’s community. 

Weropuna Witika: I’m excited about the new responsibilities I will have to uphold and making the most out of my last year with my peers.

 

What made you want to be a student leader at King’s College?

HB: I have been inspired by the welcoming, supportive nature of the student leaders from my past two years at King's. I in turn would like to provide this for others. 

WW: As a Year 9, I remember looking at the Head Prefect Board and did not see a Māori name on there, so I set myself the goal to become a leader. My father was a Head Prefect at his college and that influenced me to follow in his footsteps.

 

What would you like to achieve this year?

HB: I aim to continue the great work done by previous King’s leaders, embodying the virtues and traditions of the College. I will endeavour to project an approachable and inclusive manner, making new students to King’s feel welcome and have a sense of belonging. 

WW: I would like to create a positive environment for everyone and finish the year with a guaranteed spot onto an engineering course at a university either in Auckland or overseas.

 

What’s your favourite thing about King’s College?

HB: I love the general atmosphere of King’s. Something is always going on, there are so many willing and supportive people, and the mass of school pride is incredible. 

WW: I love how every culture is embraced by everyone and there is a positive attitude towards school events.
