STUDENT COUNCIL Meet your representatives MY SRC EXPERIENCE by Alu Agabi When I first came in I was told that there is a students council and I immediately got interested in it and wanted to become one of the students' leaders. I know I have the qualities to lead a student body and had always looked forward to an opportunity to do so. So when the time came, I collected an application form and applied to contest as one of the leaders. When all forms were filled and submitted the school shortlisted the names of all candidates and there were 9 of us in total. We were given a week to prepare for our manifestoes, and I had to plan and come up with a fine manifesto that would win the hearts of students. During the presentation of my manifesto, it's safe to say my heart was erratic but I was able to confidently deliver my manifesto and answer the questions students threw my way. No words can express the joy of having been elected as a member of the SRC. It is now my mission to do my very best. All in all, this has been a very worthwhile experience for me and I hope that as a student leader I can positively impact the school and act as a bridge between both staff and students.
