Student Council Elections

The Primary School students in Grade 2 - 5 had a presentation today about Student Council. They discussed the purpose and importance of having a Primary School Student Council representative for each class and the role this person should play. All students were invited to think about if they would like to represent their class and what this would mean. Classes discussed the election process and if students would like to represent their class they should inform their class teacher and then prepare a short speech for election day which is Friday 28th November. The students will present these short speeches to their class on Friday 28th November and then a paper vote will take place.
