We are proud to represent the school as Head Students and would like to tell you more about the highlights of our Diss High School experience. Both of us have benefited from several educational opportunities, such as trips to Warner Bros. Studios, several theatres, BBC Young Reporters and a variety of lunchtime clubs: Netball Club, Football Club, Table Tennis Club, and Volleyball Club (just to name a few of the activities DHS offers!)Here at Diss High School, we take immense pride in being able to say that we are a part of the Prefect Team. Our incredible Prefect Team consists of: Head Pupils, Deputy Head Pupils, Senior Prefects and Prefects. The Prefect Team take part in managing school events and looking after fellow students, to ensure every student has a great time at Diss High. We also have a dedicated Mentor Team who assist the Year 7 students in their transition to Diss High – we understand that this transition can be intimidating for some Year 7 students.This year, there are 2 new additions to our Prefect: our Head of Committees and our Subject Captains.The task of the Heads of Committees is to supervise their respective Committee. There are several Committees here at Diss High: Environment Committee, Charity Committee, Wellbeing Committee, Diversity Committee, and Community Committee. Each Committee has its own unique set of activities. For example, the Environment Committee looks after the allotments and green areas; the Charity Committee organises, oversees, and runs fundraisers and charity events, and the Wellbeing Committee holds support groups and provides resources to students. All students at Diss High are welcome to join any committee they’d like to. To express an interest in joining, simply talk to the Head of your desired Committee!Our Subject Captains have the task of supporting their respective subject’s activities throughout the year. This includes lunch clubs, open evenings, revision sessions and more!During our time at Diss High School, both of us have found Teachers at Diss High to be very encouraging and approachable which has really helped us develop, grow, and learn.If you do see either of us around school, don't be afraid to come up and say hello!
Senior Prefects and Mentors manage their respective teams as well as helping manage whole school events.
