Moyne College Elect new Student Council
In tandem with the U.S. Presidential Election, Moyne College had its very own election campaign over the last number of weeks when students actively canvassed for votes to be elected as Student Council representatives. Students from each year group had to be nominated for the position by 2 other members from their year group. Once they accepted the nomination Students could then canvass all of their fellow students for their vote. Frantic canvassing took place with some students using their artistic skills to prepare election posters while some used the familiar option of a friendly handshake and quick chat. An official student council election day took place on Wednesday 26th October with all students in each year group democratically casting their vote to elect their representative to the student council. The votes were counted and verified with the results announced. The 10 successful candidates were welcomed to the student council by the school principal. A Student Council is a representative structure for students only, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the school, working in partnership with school management, staff and parents for the benefit of the school and its students. Usually the student council works with a teacher, who is the link person between students and staff and management in the school. It should always work for the benefit of the school and its students. The new Student Council are looking forward already to making the school environment a better place for all stakeholders.
