Girls’ Government: Election 2016December 1, 2016 1:54 pm
The end of the year always sees a lot of changes. With Joseph and Mary Schools students, this means national exams, moving up another grade, and graduation. The JBFC Girls’ Government is no exception, with the President, Vice President, and cabinet members each serving one-year terms, the end of the year means election time.
Each block of dorms had their own voting stations, ballot receptacles, and supervisors. Even the matrons participated in the voting. Like any election around the world, there were lines at the JBFC polling stations with all the girls eager to cast their votes and let their voices be heard.
Positions up for election were: President of Girls Government 2017, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer, Health Advisor, Food Supervisor, and Dorm Leaders from 3 dorms (dorm leaders are elected to two-year terms so that only three dorms per year elect new leaders). Some of the positions saw only one girl sign-up for the election, in which case she had to receive at least 24 votes (50%) in order to be elected.
With the ballots cast and counted, we are pleased to announce the JBFC Girls’ Government for 2017:
Vice President: Jennifer
Health Advisor: Dotto
Food Supervisor: Rachel
Dorm A Representative: Reka (also senior advisor)
Dorm B Representative: Shida
Dorm C Representative: Lau
Dorm D Representative: Kulwa J
Dorm E Representative: Justina
Dorm F Representative: TBD
We know all of these girls will do fantastic jobs in their new positions!
