Past Student Leadership Initiatives
My name is Clodagh Mulvaney, and I’m writing about my experience as a team leader I’m in TY . I led a team of my peers to help out during the school’s Christmas Carol Service.
The first task of being the leader was to consult with the teacher, Ms. Shanley Blake, about information such as meeting times and different tasks we were going to do throughout the night. When I had all the information I had to make sure I told all of my peers the right information and that they would be there to help out.
On the night of the Carol Service we had different tasks and jobs to do, so I had to give the girls their tasks and make sure they understood what they had to do. The one thing I learned about being a leader is if you explain things clearly and ask nicely, your team will be more enthusiastic to help out.
TY Carol Service Team
Clodagh Mulvaney was the overall team leader and was assisted by two sub-teams: the Church Sub-Team and the Kitchen Sub-Team.
The Church Sub-Team, made up of Lara Donnelly, Robyn King, Grace Owen and Lucy Newman, welcomed people to the Carol Service and distributed pre-booked tickets as well as selling the few spare tickets that were left on the night. They also helped show guests to their seats.
The Kitchen Sub-Team was made up of Mariam Tsereteli, Elena Javakhishvili and Clodagh Mulvaney. Their tasks were to heat the ovens, prepare the mince pies and decorate them in time for the end of the service, as well as serving them to guests when they came out.
All seven students worked hard on the night, helping out in the Library and assisting the Parents’ Association. They also helped tidy the Library after the Carol Service ended.
According to Ms Shanley-Blake, “Clodagh and her team were excellent help to both myself and the Parents’ Association on the night.”
