Our Election Day
Friday 22nd September was polling day at Findern Primary School for our Key Stage 2 children. Each class was voting for their school council representatives for this year. The school hall was turned into a polling station complete with polling booths and ballot boxes. Each child had their own ballot paper and marked their chosen nominees. Elm and Fir class held their own elections to choose their class councillors.
All the 34 nominees worked hard on their election campaign trail but after some very close results the winners were announced.
This year’s School Councillors are
Willow class; Martha & Anisha
Oak class; Emma, Eliza & Sebby
Larch class; Jenson & James
Hazel class; Archie & Amelia
Fir class; Inara & Abigail
Elm class; Austin & Olivia
The council have had their first meeting, they were all very enthusiastic and full of ideas to help improve school and the wider community. One of the first projects that the school council are undertaking is to make a presentation about parliament and what democracy is. This will underpin one of the British Values that the whole school are learning about this year.
