Stockport Academy Hosts First Ever Student Council Elections
/ Categories: News, Enrichment
Student newsletter contributor Bethany Flynn reports on the recent Student Council elections...
This year, we have taken a new approach on deciding who would serve on the new student council.
The candidates will be elected fairly and democratically, according to the votes of that of the students. The hustings (answering a series of questions live or by film) took place every day during the week before the elections, giving the students a chance to present themselves and why they should be elected.
On Monday the 25th September, students were given all day to cast their votes and elect the leader, vice-captain and the board for the council in each year group. The winners were announced in form time the next day – well done everyone!
On the 20th of September, the Student Council candidates gathered for their first meeting. Mrs Milnes has shown her trust in the students to help in hiring a new Assistant Principal for the school using their own documents. Throughout the week, students interviewed the candidates for the position.
Mrs Milnes said: “In our society, many things are voted for democratically. It is important that students know the voting process, and I have loved bringing that concept into our school.”
