CBA Students Head To The Polls

It’s that time of year again when election fever is set to grip the Academy.

Next week students will be vying to take their place as form representatives, as each year group goes to the polls to vote for the students who they think will best represent their collective interests.

There will be discussions during tutor time throughout the week, before students are given the opportunity to put themselves forward as candidates.

After assembling a campaign team and putting forward their manifesto, a vote will take place on Friday (October 21st) and one boy and one girl from each form group will be chosen.

The week will culminate in a mass event in the mall, when the elected form representatives will gather to sign their student declaration.

The students who are voted in as form representatives will then have the opportunity to apply to be Senate representatives.

Assistant Vice Principal Kirsty Farrar, said: "Every student will have the opportunity to put themselves forward to represent the interests of the form and just like any election it will be a truly democratic process.

"Being a form representative is a great way of getting involved in the running of the school, as the management team do take on board all comments raised within the student forums."

All chosen form representatives can apply via letter to the role of Senate representatives.

The successful candidates will be selected on the content of the letter.
