Twelve students elected in College Council ballot
The new student College Council has been announced after votes were verified and counted following an election.
Students who stood as candidates prepared a manifesto, including information about themselves and what they would be able to offer to others within the College community if they were elected.
On the day of the election there was a ballot box in the College Atrium and a board displaying each candidate’s manifesto.
Students were able to vote for one lower sixth candidate and one upper sixth candidate.
The following 12 students were elected and are now members of the College Council:
Fatima Akuji: “I will put my all into College Council and give it my 100% effort. I will try my absolute hardest to not only have students’ opinions heard, but to also organise events.”
Ayokunle Ayorinde: “I want to be a leader in College and have responsibility. I am a people person and I can be the voice of the students.”
