Walking the campaign trail isn’t easy at the best of times, but throw in a lockdown just as you’re taking your first step, and the walk quickly becomes a trudge.
Our 10 candidates for Student Rep on our Board of Trustees took it all their stride when Auckland moved to Alert Level 3 just as they had been confirmed as candidates. So, during lockdown each of them created a 1min video, crafted posters and flyers to distribute once back at school, completed Candidate Profiles for our website, and practiced their speeches for a lunchtime presentation.
The results have been impressive and all of our students now have the difficult task of selecting one of these amazing young women as our 2020/21 Student Rep. Voting papers were distributed recently and students have until 5pm this coming Wednesday to cast their vote.
We ran all of the videos together to make this gorgeous compilation. It’s definitely worth a look – whether you’re able to vote or not!
