Head Boy and Head Girl elections at Oakhill

23 Nov 2020   |   Oakhill Primary Academy

The very prestigious annual Head Boy and Girl Elections were held at Oakhill, but this year things were a little different. 18 of our hopeful Y6 pupils prepared their speeches and had to deliver them to the whole school in a virtual assembly. We all know how hard it can be with a screen full of faces and a deadly silence as they listen and watch!

The preparation of their speeches was superb, outlining why they should be head boy/girl, 3 words to describe themselves and their favourite subjects. The speeches were then delivered with such eloquence and confidence. It was an extremely proud moment. A very difficult decision ensued for the voters and we definitely have some future candidates for Youth Parliament. The election was a huge success, and the children took the responsibility of voting very seriously. Once the votes were in and counted, we were really pleased to announce the winners. Their first job was to help with the appointment of a ‘Catch-up’ tutor and now they are tasked with leading the School Council 2020.


Head Boy – Lucas

Firstly I would like to thank everyone for voting for me. Being Head Boy is a great hob BUT it comes with HUGE responsibilities. Head Boy includes a lot of roles. This is a once in a lifetime thing and I am so happy I have been given this job. I will help anyone in need, do all my work and help Mrs McCarthy if needed. I want you all to know that I am available if you need to talk about anything. I have always wanted this job and so thankful I got it.



Head Girl – Rosie.

I am so thrilled I have been chosen to be Head Girl this year. This has been my dream since year 3. Even though the job of being Head Girl looks fun, it is a big thing and big responsibility. I am so relived that you voted for me as I know I am the right girl for the job. I can’t wait to help you all and work with Mrs McCarthy to make people love coming to Oakhill even more than they already do.
