What happens next?

After the close of nominations, all candidates who have correctly completed a nomination form and meet the criteria will be invited to attend the rules training sessions and statement and campaigning training sessions. You will be required to submit a photograph and your statement (manifesto) by the deadline. If you complete all these steps, you will automatically become a candidate.

Candidates can start campaigning on Tuesday 04 May. (Campaigning before this date will lead to disqualification.) During the campaigning period, you will be required to an online question and answer session where all students will have the chance to hear about why you want to be elected and why you think you would be a good school representative.

Students will then have the chance to vote from 08:00 to 22:00 on Wednesday 05 May and Thursday 06 May.
