Brent Council leader attends the election and gives a speech
Sixth form pupils at Copland School, Wembley, have voted for Jonathon Mensah, and Khadija Muhamed, both 17, as their head boy and girl.
Elections were held at the school in Cecil Road, attended by Cllr Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council.
He opened the proceedings with a speech about the importance of elections and praised the school for promoting democracy in the sixth form.
Each of the 12 candidates – six boys and six girls – gave a short presentation before a 15-minute question time was held.
Jonathon won 70 per cent of the votes for head boy and Khadija picked up 65 per cent of the head girl votes.
Phil Allman, head of politics, said: “It was a great event and each of the candidates spoke passionately about what they wanted to do to support the school to go forward.
