Electing class representatives and head boys / head girls of the school

Class representatives

  • Inform the class about the importance of such a job
  • Class representatives should be persons, who are on good terms with everyone in the class (not only with «their fan club»)
  • The should also be on good terms with the teachers
  • They needn’t be the best students with the best marks
  • Social competence is the most important thing
  • If the class has any special wishes they tell them their class representatives, who then go to their class teacher or other persons concerned
  • If there are any troubles in the class or with special teachers the representatives talk to their class teacher or the headmaster about that (not as student xy but as someone in this specific position)
  • It is a good idea to have two representatives in each class, quite often it is a good advice to have a boy and a girl in that position
  • Good advice: If you have younger students, they sometime vote for the clown of the class or their «class star». If you fear that, it might be a good idea to let the class first vote for «the funniest person in class», «the strongest boy», «the girl with the longest hair», «the fastest student» or anything else that comes to your mind. And after that you can let them vote for the class representatives. This way all the students that might be unfit for that specific position have been elected already.

Head boy / Head girl

  • They represent all the students of a school (like the headmasters in their position)
  • It is a good idea to have head boys / head girls for younger students and for older ones separately (like for example for the students up to class 7 and then others for the older ones)
  • You decide weather the head boys / head girls are chosen from all the class representatives or from all the students of your school.
  • There are two ways to find the head boys / head girls of a school:
  • Let only the class representatives vote for their head boys or head girls
  • Let all the students of your school vote for their head boys or head girls
  • Either way: Let the candidates for that position run a campaign before that. That usually eliminates those who only run for it to decorate themselves with that title. Make them think of what their aims for their schools are. What do they want to have, what do they want to change, do they have any serious ideas and plans for the coming school year… etc
