Ryan Blechynden and Chloe Hanson will lead Narrogin Senior High School in 2019 as head boy and head girl.

Principle Melissa Walker said the pair brought energy and passion to the leadership roles.

“They are really committed to Narrogin Senior High School, they’re really high-level leaders to the younger students,” she said.

“They have also set realistic but challenging learning goals, and they’ll achieve them because they are very dedicated to achieving outcomes.”

Ms Walker believes Chloe and Ryan would have a positive impact on the school in 2019.

Chloe will juggle her new position while working towards a placement in nursing at university in 2020.

“I want to help all the year groups to progress, and learning to take that next step forward into the year, and to encourage them to work harder and develop the skills they require,” she said.

Ryan said his goal for 2019 as head boy was making all the students’ secondary schooling experience easier.

He will also work towards pursing teaching at university next year.

“I want to make people feel comfortable coming to school and then push them to do their best,” he said.

“Also to let them know that if they do their best, that’s all we can ask from them.”
