Student leaders 2019: Head boy, Chase Leathard

"I have grown up alongside the school and have been able to see every Head Boy and Head Girl lead the school in their own personal way throughout the years. Receiving this leadership opportunity is an honour and I cannot be more grateful."
- Chase Leathard, ACG Sunderland Head Boy

My name is Chase Zane Leathard, I am Year 13 and ACG Sunderland’s 2019 Head Boy.

I have aspired to have the role of Head Boy as long as I can remember. I have grown up alongside the school and have been able to see every Head Boy and Head Girl lead the school in their own personal way throughout the years. Receiving this leadership opportunity is an honour and I cannot be more grateful.

In my opinion, a leader should be confident, enthusiastic and able to communicate well, to all ages. They should radiate positive energy and be a role model for those around them. A good leader should be kind and compassionate, organised and hard-working.

The thing that makes ACG Sunderland unique is the amount of interaction that occurs between the different age groups and year levels. Everyone knows one another, making the Sunderland community more like a family.

For me personally, ACG Sunderland has been my second home. I’m the first student to go right through from Year 1 to Year 13 and, as a result of the nurturing environment the teaching staff have provided, I will forever cherish my years at the school.

When I leave school I plan on studying Health Science and then getting into Medicine where I then hope to become a paediatrician. The reason for this career path is due to my passion for working with kids. I want to be able to help as many people as I can and ensure that the next generation live long and healthy lives.

I cannot wait for what the year will hold and hope that every student realises how lucky they are to attend a school like ACG Sunderland.
