School Council Election October 2017

For the children to understand that we are part of a democratic society, this year we planned our very own Student Council Election. Every child in Year 3 and 4 had the right to apply to be in the council by writing out a manifesto explaining why they would make a great representative.
 
The manifestos were made anonymous before they were read to every class from Reception-Year 4. Upon hearing the manifestos, the children then used a voting slip to make their own decision before placing it in a ballot box.
 
The children really enjoyed taking part in this process and saw it as an important opportunity to pick the 'best' class representatives for their class and to understand everyone's opinions count!
