Student Leadership Election 2019 - Results
All Harris Garrard Academy students from the primary, secondary and Sixth Form phases had the opportunity to exercise their democratic rights and elect a student leadership team.
Each secondary tutor group and primary class held a mini election to choose their class representative.
The Sixth Form, who were vying for Head Girl, Head Boy and Hub Captain positions, had a greater task ahead of them. Sixteen sixth formers put themselves forward as potential candidates and the husting process commenced. They had to write a one-minute speech which they delivered in hub assemblies in the secondary phase and phase assemblies in the primary phase.
Some even took their initiative to campaign during break and lunch times hoping to gain more votes.
Thursday 10th October was election day (pictured). Students from reception up to Year 13 were casting their votes throughout the day. The candidates for Head Girl and Head Boy also had to undergo an interview with the Head of Academy. The ballot boxes were closed at 2:10pm and the vote counting begun. Just under half of the students in our school chose to cast a vote in the election process. We can now reveal the results.
The following candidates have now been elected to high office as Hub Captains:
Having also successfully contested a gruelling interview process, the following students have been appointed as Head Boy and Head Girl:
For all who took part, we saw growth, confidence and resilience. It was truly democracy in action!
