Sir Peter Blake Leadership Award: Zoë Clarke
It has been said that “a good leader is one who takes a little more than their share of the blame and a little less than their share of the credit.” This philosophy reflects the poise, determination and sheer humility our young leader possesses.
It is with great joy, and pleasure that we announce Zoë Clarke, as our young leader of the year.
Zoë, you have a natural ability to lead alongside your peers making others feel valued, and appreciated and this sees you gaining widespread respect without ever having to demand it. Your warmth, kindness and inclusiveness puts trust in people to look to you as their leader, and you graciously step into this role everytime with ease. When others are in need you are consistently there, whether it is providing encouragement, lending a hand or sharing your wisdom, our kura knows they can count on you. It is a privilege to watch your vibrance filter through in all the extra opportunities you take on, and we have no doubt that you will thrive as you step forward into your high school journey.
