‘On Monday, Holly and I went to the Town Hall to represent our School Council. We talked about Staryland needing a new leader. It was lots of fun!’ Joe (Year 3)
Both children were a credit to the School as they took part in an interesting workshop about the imaginary, magical place called Staryland. In the workshop, Staryland, was in need of a new leader.
The workshop gave Holly and Joe:
- An understanding of democracy and the election process.
- The experience of participating in an election – includes; hustings from candidates, casting their vote in the same way as an ‘adult election’, and through their vote being able to influence the election outcome.
- A demonstration of the election process and outcome
- Lots of fun!
Holly and Joe have used the knowledge they obtained to help the rest of the School Council prepare for our Committee elections.
