Votes being placed into ballot box

Children have their say in Youth Elections

Ahead of the General Elections this year our school set up an opportunity for the pupils to also have their say in the Youth Elections from Our Generation, Our Vote.  A 'proper' vote was held when the school hall became a Polling Station, using real polling booths and ballot box so pupils could experience how voting at an election in our country works.  The event was organised by teacher Miss Hannah Daykin who stated, "We are passionate about instilling lifelong learning skills that will enable our children to be responsible citizens.  The need to know that their voices are heard, valued and that their votes and decisions can and will affect our country's future.
