Living and learning: I take part in democratic decisions

Friday 20 October 2023

This week has been a very special week at Scholes as we have held our Junior Leadership Team elections. All children were invited to prepare a speech –  explaining why they would like to be part of the JLT and the changes they would implement. Lots of children did this and presented their speeches to their class on Wednesday. They were absolutely fantastic! Each class then had a voting slot on Thursday morning where they placed their vote into a box in the hall. The winner from each class was announced in assembly today – a huge congratulations to the winners and also a very big well done to everyone who took part and put themselves forward! You were all wonderful and should be very proud of yourselves!

It has been great to see all children taking part in the democratic process of an election and getting a great understanding of what it means to vote and how this system works.
