    Try and make it funny and lighthearted! I suspect everyone will get tired of listening to the mundane speeches and so by injecting some humour into it everyone will remember your speech for being different!

    Or do something radical - at my college the current student president got elected because he ****ged off the previous Student Union for inactivity!

    You want to be head boy, not us. What would YOU do as head boy? What do YOU want to do as head boy?

    Try not to take yourself so seriously. Appeal to people's sense of humor, make it fun!

    Be engaging and speak slowly. Try to make your speech sound natural as opposed to fake, so people get a sense of who you are and what you stand for, as opposed to just another candidate making worthless statements about how great he is and what he will [or probably won't] do for the school. But don't take it too seriously otherwise you'll become boring to listen to. At the same time, don't be too jovial otherwise you will look like you don't care And try to come up with some original ideas but don't be unrealistic - you're not going to make vast changes the school to the school, so don't try to pretend that you will.

    Owh, when making a speech, make sure you have an intro, points, elaborate on those points and conclude. Remember connect them together, speak clearly and again SMILE!
