The Student Services Department held its first Student Council Elections on Wednesday April 10, 2013. The election was conducted digitally, allowing students to vote online. They had the choice of selecting between two candidates for President, while voters had to select “Confidence/No Confidence” for the other candidates.
The day was filled with excitement as students poured into the “polling station” to cast their vote. The exercise was well supported by students who patiently lined up in the corridor, awaiting their chance to cast their votes. Even members of staff who are also students exercised their right to vote. Several voters when asked why they came to vote, stated that they wanted to experience a change in student life at SBCS and wanted more activities and initiatives to participate in.
By the end of the day, a new Student Council committee emerged.
The new committee for 2013/2014 is:
President: Dillon Gosien
Vice President: Justin Parillon
Secretary: Lauren Darmanie
Treasurer: Colleen Khan
Social Events Coordinator: Ornella Mohammed
Public Relations Officer: Mikhail Nicholas
Sports Representative: Corinna Sequea
The new Council has already convened and new and exciting things are already abuzz for the upcoming semesters. Students can expect quite an eventful new year! All the best to the new Student Council in all of their future ventures!
