Democracy Day 2017!

Children who thought that they would be good school council representatives have had the opportunity to campaign for votes, and each person from every class had just one vote to choose the person they thought would be best at the job. 

Polling cards were issued to each child, and on Election Day these were taken to the Polling Station and exchanged for ballot papers with the names of all the candidates on.

Voters could use booths to keep their votes secret, and posted their votes into the Ballot Box. They were then collected and counted.  The successful councillors were announced by Mrs Buttress and Mrs Anderson in assembly on Monday amid great excitement.

“We are confident that our children will have chosen the best representatives to ensure all pupils have their voices heard” said Mrs Buttress. “This relates to the UNICEF Rights of the Child Charter article 12 ‘Every child has the right to be listened to and for their views to be taken seriously.’”

Everyone is so proud of all the amazing things our Student Council have been part of in the past and are looking forward to another fabulous year.
