We are delighted to announce that Head Boy 2021 is Craig and Head Girl 2021 is Esther.
Esther was born and raised in Cavan, but now lives in Castlepollard, County Westmeath and attended Castlepollard Parochial School. Over her six years in Wilson's, she has developed a particular interest in the German language and the sciences, especially Biology. In her free time Esther enjoys photography, baking and playing the piano. In school Esther enjoys playing hockey as a member of the senior girls' team.
Some of the highlights of Esther's time in Wilson’s include taking part in the musical “Hairspray" in Transition Year. "Throughout the year, while preparing for the show, I noticed our year growing closer, learning from each other’s strengths and weaknesses. By opening night, we felt like a family and it was heart-warming to show our families and teachers our efforts."
After her Leaving Certificate Esther hopes to study medicine.
Craig hails from Crookedwood and also attended Castlepollard Parochial School. He enjoys Maths and plans to study Engineering after his Leaving Certificate.
Craig is a keen Hockey player and is proud to be the youth representative on Mullingar Hockey Club Committee for whom he plays on the first team. Craig is also a runner and has represented the school in Orienteering. In his free time Craig runs a glass engraving business and enjoys wood turning. He is currently working on a bog oak sculpture to be the Wilson's perpetual orienteering trophy.
Craig and Esther were both valued members of the Wilsonian editorial team. They were voted into their positions by the Senior Prefect Team and the teaching staff. We wish them well with their endeavours.
