Sample Manifesto written by ......................... when vying for the post of Senior boys Prefect
Mr. Chairman, Honorable Proprietor and Headmaster, Mr. Commissioner 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 .......................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 ....................., 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...
