On 28 June 2022, school elections were conducted for Classes V to IX for the various leadership posts at Don Bosco School, Nashik, under the able guidance of Principal, Fr Cedrick Sankul.
The event began with Fr Roshan Gonsalves addressing the students and making them aware about duties and the responsibilities of the school leaders in general. The main objective in conducting the elections was to train students to manage the affairs of the school, and to enable them to understand the significance of the election process in a democracy.
The election process commenced by the speeches delivered by the candidates contesting for the School Captains post followed by the speeches of the candidates contesting for the vice-Captains post. All the contestants appealed to the students to vote for them and also promised them of efficient leadership if elected.
Later in the day, candidates contesting for the post of House Captains gave their speeches. After that the election was held in the form of a secret ballot, wherein the voters were given the freedom to choose their leader, with confidentiality. This method also maintained a sense of discipline among all the voters.
