The Election Process
Each year, students from Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Class are invited to nominate themselves for a place on the Student Council. Prior to the election nominees are invited to canvass and engage in debates with other candidates in their class. An election is then held in each class and two or three representatives are elected to the Student Council for the duration of that academic year. The elected pupils are required to be active participants in the Student Council, to attend meetings regularly, participate in activities and be a role model for other students. All Student Council members wear specifically designed badges to ensure they are identifiable as Student Council representatives.
