Introducing Deputy Head Boarder: Indiana Squiers
What do you hope to bring to boarding as Deputy Head Boarder?
I hope to bring a fun, supportive and encouraging attitude to the Boarding community. By doing so, I hope to see the community thrive and come together as one. I wish to bring a more coherent and inclusive environment for all Boarding students.
Where are you from?
I am from Quairading, which is a small country town directly east from Perth creating a trip of about three hours.
What do you love about boarding?
I love the environment we are provided with and the chance to live with some of your life-long friends. Boarding fosters the attitudes of resilience, patience, compassion, and hospitality. I love the variety of people I get to interact with daily and enjoy the life skills that Boarding provides me.
What’s one thing that most people don’t know about you?
I have two siblings who are currently at the school in Year 7 and Year 9. Their names are Jorja and Zarah. They are my inspiration and always find new ways to challenge me and teach me the skills to be patient and diplomatic.
What do you do to unwind?
I preferably like to sit down and watch a bit of TV or Netflix with a hot tea and Tim-tam. I also like having conversations with friends to de-stress.
