School Council Election Day

This week in school, Years 1-4 have been learning all about ‘Democracy’ during our month of ‘Respect’. Children have been buzzing with the excitement of School Council elections and representing the views of their friends on the council. Each candidate addressed their class and shared the reasons for why they felt they should be elected to represent their fellow pupils. Once all of the candidates had pitched, the individual classes headed down to our polling station and cast their votes into the ballot boxes.  Voting took place this morning in our gym, with the results of the secret ballot and School Council badges being presented in assembly on Monday.
