Cover Letter Sample
I am writing with regards to my application for the role of head girl. I consider this to be an important position of responsibility and respectability. I would gladly carry out this role and fulfil all its duties and commitments to the best of my ability. I am good at number of things, from being part of the school athletics team to achieving great academic results in the school. I am smart in appearance, sociable and well-respected by my teachers and peers I always try to be as involved with the school as I can; I have helped out at every open evening since year 7, from which I have gained confidence in communicating with parents and visitors. I have also participated in Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge which has taught me how to speak in front of a crowd and boosted my confidence drastically. I am very punctual with an attendance of 100% which proves me to be a reliable candidate who would not let the school down. I interact with lots of people in different years each day, so I feel that if I became a prefect I would be approachable to pupils from year groups younger than me. I am currently a literacy leader and every week I do a presentation for a year 8 tutor group. I know I would work well with other prefects, as I have always been a keen team worker. I believe I would receive leadership skills which are vital for the future. Not only would this position help me to gain leadership skills but it would also help to increase my confidence massively which is also vital for the future. This opportunity would be something to put on application letters for jobs, sixth forms and universities in the future and this is one of the main reasons why I feel so strongly about becoming a prefect/head girl.
I know I am a suitable candidate for the role.
