3. Why do you think being a school leader is important?
Yianni Vrionis, C: Because you're setting an example for others and your representing your school
Jun Kim, VC: It can give younger students role models to look up to and its important to be a good role model.
Jasmine Lee, C: Because being a school leader means you have a humongous responsibility.
Maha Matar, VC: Being a school leader is very important because it teachers you how to be responsible for your actions. It allows you to be humble and listen to your fellow peers. Being a school leader matured me as a students and allowed me to gain leadership qualities which helped me set a great example for Yates Avenue students.
4. If you were the principal what would you introduce?
Yianni Vrionis, C: Probably a fully equipped gymnasium.
Jun Kim, VC: If I was the principal I would introduce to the school that our school can have PSSA back.
Jasmine Lee, C: If I was the principal I would introduce 3 theme parks (lunar park, went 'n wild and Movie World) and one class gets to go each week.
Maha Matar, VC: If I was the principal I would introduce a big fun park into the school, where students would love to enjoy their breaks. This will potentially encourage all students to go to school and have a great time.
