Being elected Head Girl was scary at first and unbelievable at the same time.
The first thing we had to do was tell Mrs Earl if we would like to run for Head Girl. We then needed to start a campaign. My friends and I got to display 3 A4 sized posters around the school, as many leaflets as we would like and any sweets, cake or chocolates.
After the day I went home and designed my posters and leaflets on a computer. Some of my friends did it by hand.
The posters were left out for 2 weeks and then the whole school including the teachers got to vote. We were all extremely scared.
A week later the scores were announced for Head Boy and Head Girl. We were all trying to guess who we thought it might be. I was not expecting the results that I got!
After I was elected Mrs Earl read out the scores for vice Head Boy/Girl and one of my best friends Georgia got the role.
My name is Vinny Marchetti and I’m Headboy for 2017/18. I would like to tell you my experience in my first blog.
In year 4 I just knew I wanted to be Headboy, so in the summer holidays I prepared posters saying “vote for Vinny,” “go for gold” and “Headboy material.” I also made stickers with my face on them.
There was some very strong competition so it wasn’t easy. I knew my campaign had to be spot on to win votes. My best friend Jack was also in the campaign he was also hard competition.
The campaign felt ages it gained tension and it was nerve-racking. Before the speech we had to make up a mini 30 second talk which Mr Taylor filmed to impress the other pupils. I had very good support from Charlie in year 5 which was very kind of him, I think he wanted it more than I did!
The day arrived, it was the celebration assembly to announce who was Headboy/girl. My mum sat there as nervous as me. When Mrs Earl announced my name I had mixed emotions of overwhelmed, relieved and ready to start my job. I am also very happy to work with Amelia and I’m thrilled at getting this role.
