Head Boy speech. Ideas?Watch this thread
Start with that..
I think you need to ask about what the objective of the speech is and work around that.
If it's an acceptance speech then thank your peers for voting you, summarise what you want to do in a punchy way, throw in funny jokes and a relevant story, conclude and talk about a journey or something.. and finish

A poet named Henry David Thoreau once wrote “I cannot make my days longer, so I strive to make them better”. With this Head Boy election here at St. Joseph’s, we also have an opportunity to make our days better.
I believe our college is like a tree; we are all different parts of this tree, for example – The teachers are like the roots, which supplement us with knowledge and help us to grow. If I was Head Boy, I would be like the manure which the gardener spreads to enrich the ground, just that little added extra which can make a big difference.
Some of the things I’ve thought about for the school are:
1) I want the students to have a voice in St Joseph’s. For that we have a pupil council. The thing is though, the pupil council is absolutely useless. I’m not just saying that for no reason. I was a member of the council until my 5th year and I’m sure some of you will agree with me when I say that while we talked and discussed and acted as if we had a say, it was really the teachers that ran the show. A lot of important decisions have been made in the school by the teachers and though the pupil council is called to meet and discuss these decisions, what they, what we say doesn’t really matter that much. Even if we were to show our complete disagreement, it wouldn’t matter. I’m not just making this up by the way, this is the case. If you vote for me as Head Boy, I will do my best to change this.
2) I want St. Joseph’s to offer more clubs, tournaments and competitions. These can be sport and non-sport. For example, in terms of tournaments we could have badminton, basketball and obviously football – maybe themed on the Euro 2012 tournament this year. In terms of non-sporty things, we could have monthly art and photography contests; we could form a group of people who know a lot about computers and gaming to maybe become a gaming group which could even develop some small, free computer games for the school.
3) If I am Head Boy, I also promise to do my best to form a prom committee, with people from 5th and 6th year, to organise a brilliant prom for you all. Next years prom might not be on your minds right now, especially for all the 5th years, but in a few months you’ll start thinking about it and it’ll become much more important.
I realise that, being Head Boy isn’t about being better than anyone else. It’s about having the trust of the student body to organise and represent them with honesty and enthusiasm, whenever called upon.
I have the compassion to listen, the ability to always work hard, yet have a good sense of humour.
So don’t vote for me just because of my good looks and charming demeanour, although you might be tempted to do that. Vote for me because you have excellent taste and superb decision making skills!
Our days might not be longer but they can sure be better."
Head boy - As the name suggests is someone who will head or lead something. But whom and how? The answer to this question lies in the qualities possessed by him. Leadershipquality is the most crucial aspect of becoming a head boy. He should be a role model and set an inspiring example for fellow students to follow. A confident and responsible person is always chosen and stands different in the crowd. Good communication skills will enable him to reach out to more and more students with clarity. A kind nature will help him to build trust and get better participation and results in various activities organized in school and at different levels. Apart from these qualities, he should behave as a normal student, be approachable and never misuse his power. With this, I would like to conclude my speech with a famous quote," A good leader takes little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit".Thank you!
maybe something like this but you can always alter it for your ideas
hope this helps
