Democracy is alive and well in the Year 9 classroom. We held a nomination process to select Captain and Deputy Captain. Following selection, a shortlist five candidates spoke to the class about why they should be elected into a leadership role. They all spoke clearly and confidently and I am sure any of them could do the job. While the front runner was evident we will need to have a sudden death vote on Monday – anonymous to students and via Google forms. These leadership roles are potentially more important than some students think – especially those with longer term goals of being prefects in the school at Year 13. Hence we teachers put the effort into making sure the process is fair and transparent.
