​Introducing the nine new members of our Student Union team for 2019/20 after a very successful and tightly run election.The election process was a lively affair and demonstrated the enthusiasm and involvement of our student community. Students in the running put together impressive campaigns with colourful portal banners and PowerPoint slides expressing why they should be considered, including some witty slogans. Students applying for the role of President also filmed speeches, which were shown alongside the
campaign slides for all other roles in
tutorial sessions. Voting took place on
7 May.

Congratulations go to Florence Kilby,
elected as President, and Harry Hayley,
elected as Vice. Florence, a 6.1 French,
Politics and Economics student, said,
“Hopefully over the next year we can
bring about a positive impact not just for
the College but for future students too.”
Florence and Harry will be supported
by Kinga Kowalkowska (Eco Executive),
Amira Chaoui (Equality and Diversity
Executive), Kai Allen and Alexandra
Pitt (Charities and Events Executives),
Sam Lefebvre (Finance Executive),
Sophia Pascoe (Marketing Executive)
and Madeleine Pattison (Health and
Wellbeing Executive).
Alexandra and Kai have already got their
work cut out as they prepare for their
first event, the Summer Festival held
on the College playing fields in July.
While Amira says, “My plans as Equality
and Diversity Exec include working
to promote more activities, clubs and
tutor sessions around “protected
characteristics” in tandem with the
Feminist Society, Christian Union, GSA
and Islamic Society to promote their
work and encourage new members
to join.”
The goals of the Student Union include
raising funds for the Esher College
Africa Trust (ECAT), which helps AIDS
orphans and encouraging awareness
about green issues around College life.
Overall the election process has been
very positive. As we say goodbye to our
previous Student Union, we would like to
thank all who applied and congratulate
our newest members. We look forward
to the year ahead.
