Polling Day

Election day dawned with lots of nervous and excited candidates. The final few hours of campaigning were done during the morning with candidates sharing their ideas with their classmates and drumming up support. The election was held during the afternoon with everyone going along to cast their votes in secret in the polling station set up in the library. Each class had a separate voting form showing all the names of the candidates and the children chose who to put their cross against before posting them in the polling box.

After all the votes were cast Miss Smid had the job of counting the ballot papers to find out who had been elected and that the election had been run fairly.

 

Election Week!

This week is election week for the School Council. Two children from years 1 to 6 will be elected to represent their classes as School Council meetings. Their role is to help make improvements to the school or how our school is as a community.

The children who would like to stand as a candidate have been asked to prepare their own manifesto, with their ideas for improving the school and to then run a campaign. Many of the children are involved with poster, t-shirts and badges on display everywhere.

Check out some of the campaigns below:

Councillors Day Out

On Thursday 8th June, our school councillors visited the local polling station to get an idea for how an election works. We asked lots of questions and got to meet Joe, a local council member.

After visiting the local polling station, we went to the cinema to watch “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” and had lunch at McDonalds. This was a treat to say thank you to the councillors for all their hard work this year.
