Student Council Elections at Kottonera

On 06th December 2018, the students at St. Margaret College Secondary School, had the opportunity to democratically elect the Student Council for the year 2018/2019. This process was coordinated by the Aġenzija Żgħażagħ Kottonera Regional Youth Service (AŻ@K).

For the election, an electoral commission was formed by the students who setup the rules and regulations of the election. During the same period, students from each year were encouraged to contest the Student Council elections. 20 students eventually put themselves forward.

During the three-week long campaign, the students had the opportunity to promote themselves during the assembly, create posters and spoke to students one to one. Over 90% of the school population voted with only a handful of votes being invalid ones. Once the voting process was over the electoral commission counted the votes for each year. 13 representatives were elected.

The new Student Council at the school will be run by the Youth Workers from AŻ@K. The Student Council will now start as from 19th December 2018 and will begin with a plan of action for the year 2018/2019.
