We have been very busy over the past few weeks learning about elections, hustlings and how to give a good speech. We watched some videos of children in America giving speeches to join the student councils in their schools and some encouraging words from Kid President.
We all got very creative for our speeches with some children coming up with songs, dances, raps and some children made very convincing posters and catch phrases.
The elections took place in the library where each child’s name was marked off their class lists and ballots were stamped to make sure everything was fair and official. Each child ticked the box beside the name of the person they wanted elected for their class and placed their ballot in the correct box.
The votes were counted and checked by Robert, Ajay and Maja. The elected members of are student council for this year are:
Emily’s Second Class – Romet Sally’s Second Class – Magnus
Katie K’s Third Class – Julia K Clara’s Third Class – Robyn and Nikita
Aishling’s Fourth Class – Sofija and Sharya Michael’s Fourth Class – Ross and Lianna
Shane’s Fifth Class – Daniella and Marcu
We are really looking forward to being part of our school’s first student council and hope to have our first meeting early in the New Year.
