Let me just share my happiness over my first born son. He run for treasure last week for their school student council, he lost but the support of his friends and other students are just overwhelming. Three students run for the said position, Grade 5, Grade 6 and him, Grade 4. Today, the results was out and the Grade 6 student won over him for just 4 votes.. Imagine that? only 4 votes! To think that it was a Grade 6 student and he even had more votes than the Grade 5 candidate.. I am just debunking the idea that higher year always win hahaha
It’s a good fight and more than that I am very thankful for the chance given to him. I am pretty sure it’s another plus points to his character and personality. And though he lost, he gained a lot from that experience. I am one happy mom and super proud of my first born. Next year again!
Here’s one of his campaign material during the election:
Treasurer di ba? kaya dapat all about the money! I got the idea from the super awesome Mr G (best friend ko yan si G eh hihi). He was suppose to rap/sing the chorus line of Price Tag (with a few play on the lyrics) “I care about your money! money! money! I care about your money! money! money!” kaso naunahan ng hiya hahaha (ayan lesson learned din sa kanya, si mommy ang laging tama! woohoo mahat-0, mommy-10 points!)
Another idea I got from my best friend, the awesome Mr G, was how to write a speech for the school treasurer (link).. he asked me to help him write his speech the night before the presentation of the candidates, kumusta naman ang cramming kuya? Kaya si Mr G, awesome na awesome talaga yan! Here’s a summary of what we learned on how to write a speech for the school treasurer:
Treasurer’s responsibility includes handling the finances of the student council. He/ She is responsible for accounting the money and making sure that the money is well spent on projects and other school council expenses. Given that, when writing a speech for a treasurer, one should establish his/ her credentials in order to convince the students that he can perform the said responsibilities.
In writing a speech, one should give an utmost priority to the greetings, common courtesy. Greet the teachers, the staff and of course the students.
Introduce yourself, your grade level, your section as well as your adviser.
Present your credentials and achievement as well as your plans when you win the seat.
Lastly, tell the voters to vote for you: VOTE FOR ME (then your name) and end your speech with a catchy slogan.
My first born, who is running for treasurer, used the slogan: Your Money is safe with Mahat (his second name) and I care about your money. His speech was short, talking about his achievement in the Math department.
I know he enjoyed campaigning and though he was a bit disappointed he did not won, he is happy with the votes he got.
