As part of our focus on considering what it means to be ‘World Class,’ this week we feature Sandringham Year 12 student Logan Hewitt. In addition to his studies, Logan also works on the Young Enterprise venture Tenacity and helps as a student assessor for the WCSQM. I spoke to Logan this week and asked him a few questions:
What do you think it means to be a World Class Student?
I think it means being aware of other people as much as yourself. It is about being able to contribute to discussions but also being able to listen to others and be a good team player.
Why do you think Sandringham is considered a World Class School?
There is a strong sense of community here. Everyone has their individual strengths but together they become a team and play off each other's strengths.
What do you hope to achieve as an ambassador for World Class Schools?
Personally, I hope to improve my communication skills within groups. I also hope to bring my logic focused mind to the assessment process.
Is there anyone that you look up to as an inspirational figure?
Jordan Peterson, the Canadian psychologist has really inspired me. One of key messages is all about being the best you can be, despite any past difficulties.
How do you think fellow students at Sandringham can show World Class attributes?
They can be World Class by listening to others but also by not being afraid to speak their own mind. My message would be that you can be World Class even if you don't always feel it. There is always room for change if you build each other up.
