Election Time!

October 15, 2011

This week we held elections for our school council, which we call Student Leaders.

What’s important for us about this, is that the elections are held out in the open in a public and busy part of our school. This boosts the profile of student voice, makes sure the elections are open and transparent, and starts to encourage young people to pick up the habits of democracy. Having a great group of sixth formers who can go out and buy balloons and run the election helps too!
