There has been a real buzz of excitement in the air throughout our Greenfield Election Week, when children in Year 5 have stood for election for the positions of Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl. It all started with our candidates’ speeches declaring their manifestoes in a special whole school assembly on Monday morning. At Wednesday’s Hustings, children from all year groups came up with a range of interesting and challenging questions for the candidates to answer, including ‘What has inspired you to be Head Boy or Head Girl?’ and ‘What do you do to help out at home?’
The candidates themselves and their campaign teams have all worked together and supported each other well, sticking to the task and even surprising parents and staff with their maturity and clear thinking.
Voting took place yesterday and today. I have been pleased and impressed with the way in which all our children have taken the process so seriously and clearly given their choices so much thought. All votes have been counted and double checked this afternoon and we are delighted to announce the results:
Head Boy Jude Berry
Deputy Head Boys Todd Stevens & Remy Wear
Head Girl Mary Cutler
Deputy Head Girl Evie-Mae Wells
Alfie Wilde Grace Burford-Sargent Tilly Willetts-Court
Niamh Bird William Smith Hannah Cole
Joss Wells Maurice Meneer Lottie Webster
Many thanks and congratulations to each and every one of you. Your attitude, cooperation and conduct have been superb. We all agree that each one of you is a credit to our school and we are looking forward to seeing you in action in the next school year.
