Election SpecialElectioneering is over, the votes have been counted and the 2014 Student Representative on the Kaipara College Board of Trustees is (drum-roll), Ellice Protheroe. This year there was a record number of candidates vying for the position with six students putting their names forward. All candidates were required to give a short speech at the weekly school assembly outlining what they hoped to achieve if they were the successful candidate. Some candidates went into electioneering mode with posters and fliers appearing around the college. All regular students from Year 9 to Year 13 were entitled to vote.
Congratulations to the successful candidate, Ellice, and to all the other candidates. They were all of a very high calibre and had the courage and commitment to put themselves forward to represent the interests of their fellow students. Ellice is the newest member of the Student Leaders Team.
