On Friday November 12, 2021, the Transgenerational thinkers of Pure City International School held a general election to vote in new senior prefects for the 2021/2022 academic year. 

The election process went on as scheduled on the school campus accordingly, without any complications. It was a very peaceful election.

Prior to the election day, the candidates contesting for the various leadership positions had been introduced to the students and pupils. 

After listening to the manifestos and campaign assurances of the candidates, Pure City Transgenerational thinkers were very excited when the headmaster announced on Thursday that the ballot papers were ready for elections on Friday.

The number of votes cast for Boys’ Prefect was 167, with Three rejected votes/spoilt ballot. Desmond Omari, No,2 on the ballot paper polled 143 (87.20%) of the valid votes cast. Jayson Obeng Kwakye had 21 (12.80%) of the valid votes cast, making Desmond Omari, Boys’ Prefect elect for 2021/2022 academic year.

A total count of 163 votes were cast for Girls’ Prefect. Two votes were rejected, making the total valid vote cast 161. Bernice Osei Danso, No.1 on the ballot paper had 138 (85.70%) of the valid votes cast while Kezia Konadu Lamptey, second on the ballot paper polled 23 (14.30%) of the valid votes cast, making Bernice Osei Danso Girls’ Prefect elected for 2021/2022 academic year. 

The Principal Mr. Kingsford Akandeiba announced the results of the election amidst cheers from the students and pupils.

Among the voters were the current prefects, who were still in the final preparation stage for their upcoming Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) that was scheduled to start on Monday, November 15. 

Newly elected prefects said that the participation, words of encouragement, and support from their current senior Boys’ and Girls’ prefects have inspired them to aim to do better in their new offices.

After Mr Akandeiba declared the election process over, the preschool department took over and crowned new stars of the week.

Congratulations to the newly elected Prefects and stars of the week and best wishes to our transgenerational thinkers sitting for the 2021 BECE.
