Meet Hannah – Senior Monitor

Meet Hannah (Upper Sixth, McClure) one of our Senior Monitors here at Mill Hill School. We spoke to her to find out a bit more about her and her role.

How long have you been at Mill Hill School?

I joined Belmont Preparatory School when I was in Year; I have been a part of the Mill Hill School Foundation ever since! 

What does your role involve?

Giving speeches is a key part of my role. I have prepared talks for parents, pupils and staff. I try to make my speeches engaging and relevant to the audience I am addressing. To do this, I select different topics and use different types of language depending on the group I am talking to.

The second most significant part of my role is being a representative of pupils’ voices. I have attended senior leadership meetings and liaised with staff members to articulate how pupils at Mill Hill School feel about certain topics. This has massively improved my confidence and taught me how to effectively communicate with others. I am grateful for this opportunity as it has enabled me to learn time-management and organisational skills, both of which will be important at university and work.

What is your favourite thing at Mill Hill School?

Definitely the sport! The Games Department at Mill Hill School is fantastic and there is always a wide variety of sports for pupils to get involved in. Whether it is hockey, cricket, swimming or tennis, there is something for everyone. I also love that our teams consist of people from different year groups. This has allowed me to build great friendships with girls throughout the school. 

Do you have any advice for our pupils which could help them to get the most out of their time at Mill Hill School?

If you have an idea or would like to see something happen at our school, then go for it! Everyone at Mill Hill School is incredibly supportive and the staff will go the extra mile to help bring your ideas to life. 

Can you tell us something that we might not know about you?

I have three dogs, and one of them weighs more than me! 

What is your favourite book and film and why?

The Harry Potter books and films are my favourite because I love magic! I also have fond memories of watching the films with my older brother when we were little. 

Finally, could you share an inspirational quote with us? How does it inspire you?

“If your dreams don’t scare you then they’re not big enough”  Muhammad Ali. This quote is a great reminder to always push yourself!

Look out for more interviews with our Senior Monitors next term!
