Head Students 2020

Troy James

During the year of 2020 the subjects that I have taken are Sport and Recreational Studies, Sports Science, Sport Elite, Mathematics with Statistics and Media Studies.

Sports are real passion of mine and it is something that I take great pride in. I have been fortunate enough to co-captain the 1st XV in 2018 and 19 and have been given the opportunity to captain the 1st XV again, for the third time in 2020.

My goals for this year are to gain NCEA Level 3 and University Entrance. As well as develop my public speaking and use the opportunities and challenges that are presented to me through Head Student to better myself as a person.

After school, I intend on enrolling in the Royal New Zealand Navy and becoming a physical training instructor and then becoming a professional fitness instructor.

The subjects I am taking this year are Dance, Sport and Recreational Studies, Sports Science, Sport Elite and Mathematics. I really enjoy playing sport and being active in my daily life. I've been privileged enough to play for the TAC 1st XV for my third year coming up this year and I am looking forward to see what the final season has in store for us as a team.
I also have a passion for dance. I have been super honoured and super blessed to have represented New Zealand in multiple oversees hip hop competitions throughout Australia and Europe.
One of my goals for this year is to firstly carry out my role as Head Student to a high-quality standard and to also further my growth and knowledge in dance pushing myself to be the best person that I can be. My academic goal is to pass NCEA Level 3 achieving 15+ credits at Excellence level.

This year my choices of subjects are English, Calculus, Earth and Space Science, Drama and Painting. I have achieved my goals over the past two years by endorsing both NCEA Level 1 and 2 with Excellence.
I have a passion for the arts and have been expressing myself through drama, art, and various musical instruments over the years.
My goals for this year are to achieve Level 3 Endorsed with Excellence, fulfil my role as Head Student to the best of my ability, and do my best to achieve and participate in as many things as I can manage in this last year of College.
Next year I plan to study Psychology, moving into Clinical Psychology, with either a Bachelor of Science at Victoria University/Waikato University, or Bachelor of Biomedicine at Auckland University.

I have done quite well in my last two years of NCEA, achieving Level 1 with Excellence endorsement and Level 2 with Merit endorsement. I have played hockey for the school since Year 9 in the First XI team.
My goals this year are to fulfil my role as Head Student to the best of my ability, while also improving my public speaking. I also hope to captain one of the hockey teams and gain NCEA Level 3 with Merit endorsement.
When I leave school I am planning to study Christian Studies at Laidlaw College in Auckland.

I am honoured and privileged to be elected as the Student Representative on the Board of Trustees for 2020 and I am thankful to the students for giving me this opportunity.
The subjects I am taking this year are English, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Sports Science and Sport Elite. All of which help me to reach my goals for the future that revolve around my chosen sport of rugby, and a career in the medical profession.
I managed to gain NCEA Level 1 endorsed with Merit but this year I aim to achieve NCEA Level 2 endorsed with Excellence. I am motivated in both sporting and academic education. Rugby is my main sport and I am lucky enough to be Captain of the Girls 1st XV. I have represented Waikato in the U16 and U18 grades last year. This year I hope to not only achieve the same goals but to possibly achieve higher.
I look forward to being the Student voice of Te Awamutu College and representing them to the best of my ability.
