Attention Year 9-13 Students
LAC BOARD OF TRUSTEES STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE NOMINATIONS WILL OPEN ON FRIDAY 6 SEPTEMBER AND WILL RUN UNTIL 12 NOON THURSDAY 12 SEPTEMBER 2019
NOMINATION FORMS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT RECEPTION AND COMPLETED FORMS SHOULD BE LEFT IN THE BOX PROVIDED THERE.
How does this work?
If you are on the electoral roll (available with the nomination forms), you may nominate a candidate (who also should be on that roll) to run for Student Rep. on the Board of Trustees. This is not an ‘internal’ LAC only event – it is a legal process which is run nationwide each year.
THE FOLLOWING IS IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ IT CAREFULLY, BECAUSE IF THE NOMINATION FORM IS NOT CORRECTLY COMPLETED OR THE CANDIDATE IS INELIGIBLE, YOUR NOMINATION WILL BE DECLARED INVALID.
- When nominating, please note the reverse of the Election Nomination Form, where you will find ineligibility criteria. Ensure that the person you are nominating is eligible.
- The details and the signature of the person nominating AND the person being nominated MUST be included on the form.
- You may nominate yourself if you wish.
- Before nominating a current Year 13 student, please note that should he/she be elected, then another election will have to be held at the beginning of next year, as the elected person will have left school. This also applies if a nominated student from Years 9-12 is not planning to be at LAC next year. Also, it would mean that such a student would not have much opportunity to represent you, as Board meetings only occur approximately once every two months.
- Voting for the nominated candidates will commence MONDAY 23 SEPTEMBER and close at 12 noon MONDAY 23 SEPTEMBER
- Votes will be counted and the result declared on TUESDAY 24 SEPTEMBER.
- The elected trustee takes office on WEDNESDAY 25 SEPTEMBER 2019.
Candidates: please submit a brief statement about your abilities and reasons for standing for election – to be put into the box with the nomination.
