When St Aidan’s Church of England Academy named David Joni as its new head boy, it marked a special event in its development.
David, who came to Darlington from the Czech Republic, is the first head boy who has been appointed having spent all his secondary school career at the Academy, which starts its fifth year of existence in September.
The 15-year-old, who came to the UK when his family moved, was elected at the same time as new head girl Michelle Foster, also 15, who came to the Academy in 2009.
David, who previously lived near Prague, said: “I have been here throughout my secondary school career and have seen the Academy getting better and better. I am looking forward to the responsibility that comes with the job and to representing the Academy.”
The head boy and head girl have a range of duties, including attending meetings at the Academy and representing it at official events.
Michelle said: “I am looking forward to serving as head girl. I expect to have plenty of work to do.”
