Student Council Elections
Our Student Council elections have become a key feature of our beginning-of-academic-year events and students have settled comfortably into this role. Previous cohorts have donated veronica buckets to the Anglican school, supported the acquisition of a library and led weekly reading sessions with the Methodist School all in Kenyase. We are currently in talks with another school to see how best we can continue to give back to our local community.
Students who have the opportunity to serve on the Student Council learn important leadership skills that stay with them long after their tenure. They learn to multitask, boost their confidence, work in a team, allocate and use resources efficiently and to make a difference.
This year’s rigorous political campaign began with the filing of nominations and reading of innovative manifestoes. Nine candidates presented creative, well-crafted and convincing speeches in their bid to win the audience’s confidence and votes. It was such a delight to see some budding politicians at work.
Voting began after the reading of manifestos at Morning Assembly on Friday, 15th September 2017. Prior to voting, the Electoral Commissioner, Mrs. Barbara Deveney, explained the voting regulations and the ballot box was used to ensure that the elections were confidential, transparent, free and fair. We are learning about democracy in time for voting when we are 18 years old.
After a highly competitive process, our Student Council Members for the 2017/ 2018 academic year are:
- Jose Antonio Valenzuela
- Selorm Siisi Ako
- Ewan Konrad Kintzel
- Nubuke Eli Dzantor
- Hannah Kim Jennings
- Agustina Loreto Valenzuela
The newly elected Student Council was inaugurated on Friday, 29th September 2017. Congratulations to our outgoing Student Council on the successes chalked so far and a warm welcome to the new cohort.
