Primary School

25 November 2018

To mark the occasion of World Children’s Day, the Primary school held our Student Council Elections. 

Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. A school council provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them. A school council that is supported and nurtured helps to improve many aspects of school life. It is also an important and useful way for our school to provide leadership and development opportunities for our students. 

Within the school curriculum, one of the key areas making up the ‘Learning for Life ’ theme is active participation. School councils are an excellent way in which to increase participation, teaching young people about democracy, local and global citizenship and accountability. 

So, during the day, the teachers in each class discussed the role of student council representative and created a mind map of the essential characteristics that were required to become a student councillor. The students that decided they would like the opportunity to represent their class were asked to prepare a short speech on why they would make a good class representative. The class then had a private vote and the results were announced on Thursday during school assembly.

Below are examples of the speeches created by the newly appointed Head Girl, Head Boy, Deputy Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy. 

Dear Mr. Jefferson, 

I am writing to apply for the position of head girl. There are many reasons why I think this is a good idea and I would like to share them with you. 

Most importantly, I think it would be a good chance to give this opportunity to someone who was in this school for seven years, has been a playground leader in her fifth year of school, was on student council in her sixth year and someone who knows most of the children very well and not only students but teachers as well. I am someone who focuses on responsibility, independence, leadership and I really respect our school “High 5”. 

Secondly, I would like our school to be litter-free and I would like all students to be happy because I really like our school to a place that draws a smile on every place. 

Thank you for your time. I am looking forward to receiving any information from you soon. 

Yours sincerely, 

Ameena Yasser Mohamed 


Dear Mr. Jefferson, 

My name is Khamis, a Year 6 student. I wrote this letter because I want to be head boy, so please choose me because it is a dream and I really want my dream to come true. Please choose me because I always try my best in class. 

So, this year in Year 6, I really want to be head boy so please choose me! If you do not choose me, it’s OK because I will try again next year. 

Thank you. 

Yours sincerely, 



Dear Mr. Jefferson, 

I would like to be deputy head girl because I feel I would be good for the job. 

I would like to help the younger children when upset because I am good with little children. I am also very kind and I try my best to help people to be safe and do their best. I would be able to make speeches in assembly as I am not scared of speaking in front of people and I have done it before in Year 5. 

I will be able to handle the responsibility of being deputy head girl without letting it go to my head. I would be a good leader and would always do my best to make school a better place. 

Yours sincerely, 



Dear Mr. Jefferson, 

I have written this letter to you because I would like to be the deputy head boy. 

I want to be deputy head boy because I want to have the responsibility of this school and to be a part of our school leadership and to be a leader for our own primary school. 

I have also experienced student council by being one. I have attended this school for over five years and therefore I would feel honoured and privileged to represent my school as a leader. 

I am well-mannered and quite an approachable student and want to help this school by organising more equipment in our lessons and creating opportunities for other students to take part in our school events. 

Thank you for reading my reasons for being deputy head boy. 

Yours sincerely
