Just before the Winter holiday there was a very important election at Newman School...
There was a vote for the new Chairperson. The two candidates were Bilal and Samuel, both candidates presented in front of the school in a student council assembly. Their presentations included a video they had made beforehand and a live question and answer session.
The pupils and young people voted based on the strength of what they had just seen and the voting was very close. It was a shame there could be only one Chairperson as both candidates did a fantastic job and had some wonderful ideas.
Well done to Bilal who won the vote, but also well done for Samuel who will be the Deputy Chairperson.
