Hi everyone,  last week was school council election week and we had a great time casting our votes.

This year, to learn about the British Value of democracy we had an official polling day for our election.  At least 2 girl candidates and 2 boy candidates from each year group  (some brave candidates making presentations to their class to try to win votes) were put forward to the vote on Friday when pupils visited our official polling booth and cast their votes in a real ballot box.  We all had to follow the rules of a real polling station, not talking once we entered other than to give our names and even had our own presiding officer and poll clerk. 

See the photos below.  Well done to everyone, you were all very sensible during polling. As you can see, everyone thought very carefully about who they were going to vote for and followed the official polling station rules for voting very well. 

The results will be revealed on Monday with our first school council meeting taking place on Tuesday.
