6. School Prefects

Prefectorial System

Mayflower Preparatory School practices a system of democracy in electing prefects in the school. Students vying to be prefects must be in form two and must be nominated by their colleagues.

The electoral committee made up of the assistant headmaster and three other teachers vet the nominated candidates.

Successful aspirants are given four days to campaign in all classes and also present their manifesto to the student body on the fifth day.

Sample Manifesto written by Kobina Kwegyir-Aggrey when vying for the post of Senior boys Prefect

Mr. Electoral Commissioner, Honorable Proprietor and Headmaster, distinguished staff members, co-aspirants, fellow students, ladies and gentlemen, I greet you all

It has been observed by me in recent times, that there are many problems, which arise day in day out. I do not wish to make this entire problem known, because they give me an ill-feeling when I mention them.

Nevertheless, for the sake of my manifesto, I am going to give an instance of a situation as an example.

Comfortably seated lady and gentlemen, Imagine yourself being a teacher, you have just given an exercise which you were marking, or you are busily compiling your examination results. As you continue your task, one boy runs up to you and says “Sir, this boy has hit me with a ball” The lad is expecting you to leave your work and go and administer justice to his said trouble maker.

If you were to be that teacher, what will your reaction towards the issue be? I do not suppose you would leave your work to attend to that issue; such problems should be left into the hands of the prefects.

One of such prefects who play a major role in the school is the boys’ prefect. This is the reason why I want to take up this responsibility demanding position.

Ladies and gentlemen, the voting is in your hands and it is your own decision. I am appealing to you all to vote for Kobina- Kwegyir Aggrey as your boys’ prefect, so that when this school gets a change of a lifetime, with the blare of a trumpet, we can all say that something has happened out of the blues.

Once again, listen to the cry of your humble servant Kobina Ebo. K Aggrey, vying for the post of the high office of the senior prefect of this humble institution.

Now to my dear juniors who have been in a state of melancholy for so long a time due to ill-treatments and injustice meted out to them by others in the crack of a whip, crackling of wood and creak of a hinge, put on broad smiles, for the days of your doom are over

Vote for Busumburu Kobina Kwegyir Aggrey for your vote is your power which will catapult me into unleashing my fabulous policies, which will drive the whole populace of the land of great Mayflower through a transitional state of positive change.

Vote for Kobina, for I am a think tank and above all an established academician who will rise, defend and protect the sovereignty and integrity of the good people of Mayflower.

Vote and vote wisely, for your vote is your power. Thank you all.

Kobina and Kelvin Kwegyir Aggrey

Sample Manifesto written by Mariam Agyekum when vying for the post of Girls Prefect

I had a dream and in the dream I had a vision and in the vision, I saw that I could move this great school from one state to another. It is said that the old age of Methuselah has nothing to do with the wisdom of the wise King Solomon.

Mr. Chairman, Mr. Headmaster, the honourable members of staff of this noble school, the electoral commissioner, fellow aspirant, enthusiastic students, I greet you all. Once again, here comes another political season or era which is characterized by the handing over of spiritual and physical batons from the old Elijah’s to the new Elisha’s

First and foremost, the Latin saying “ qui mutum datum qui sum mutum expectatum “ which simple means to whom much is given much is expected goes to prove the fact that I am the best of all choices made.

I, Mariam Alara Maame Akosua Tutua Agyekum in collaboration with the other prefects about to be elected will ensure that discipline is held in the highest level. Secondly, it is an undebatable fact and therefore a force to reckon with members of this school have not got the opportunity is recent times to participate in external games, quizzes, debates etc which will however boost their mental, social and physical attitudes.

Also, I will ensure that the school is have a well equipped library for it is said that a man who does not read get the constipation of thoughts and diarrhea of words.

My ultimate priority of the “ Ancora Impara” which simply means that the attitude of learning shall I hold indisputably to ensure that my time shall see a considerably rise in academic performance.

Finally, I will like you to cast your votes for I have the power of the peace novelist; Mahatma Ghanda, the charisma of Flt. Jerry John Rawlings, the nobility and fame of Nelson Mandela, the commanding power of Field Marshall Idi Amin, the finest meritorious rule of Fidel Castro and above all the vision of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

Vote and vote wisely for your vote is your greatest power and secrete. Vote Mariam Agyekum, the potential potentate who has the power, ability, capability and capacity to head you towards the attainment of your aspiration.

God bless you all!

God Bless mayflower!!

God bless Ghana!!!

Thank you.
