CLOSING OF NOMINATIONS FOR NATIONAL STUDENTS COUNCIL ELECTIONS
The Electoral Committee for the elections of the National Students’ Council is notifying school administration and student councils of the closing of nominations for positions on the National Executive today November 8th, 2017. Nominations were opened for a two-week period where students eligible to vie for the various spots were encouraged to submit nomination forms. Upon review of nominations by the Electoral Board, the successful candidates will be presented to the student body and public ahead of November’s General Conference of Students Councils. The Assembly, which marks the beginning of a new students council year is the highest decision-making body of the organization and meets annually to discuss the way forward for the council and elect a new executive for the following year. This year’s event is expected to engage 100-150 student leaders from across the island and will be held at the Mental Wellness Centre, Conference Room on the Millennium Highway on the 17th of November. The day is celebrated internationally as the “International Day of the Student”.
The event is organized as a grand celebration of the NSC’s achievements and will bring youth icons together to provide inspiration for the student leaders present. We look forward to a keenly contested election and urge students to view the occasion as an opportunity to develop leadership skills and work closely with the National Youth Council.
