On Friday we had a special election to choose two new Health and Safety Counselors for school.
In order to make it a democracy and completely fair for all parties involved, we decided the best way would be to vote!
Candidates who wanted to stand had to write a letter and present to the class their ideas, we then had a ‘Question Time’ for each candidate who had a tough grilling about their ideas from other members of the class.
However, not everything went to plan….
After Toby (also known as the ‘Blah Blah’ Party) was the clear first choice for our new counselor, we had a draw between Jessica C. (Banana Party) and Tilly (Good to be Green Party) for our second counselor! We re-voted as a class, and again it ended up as an exact draw! In true politics style, Mr. Ollis came to class to solve the up-roar of our ‘hung’ parliament after the surprising turn of events! It was decided that both Banana Party and Good to Be Green Party are to form a coalition and hope to work together to take on a joint role.
Phew, What an exciting morning!
Here are some pictures from the event!
All 5 Candidates stood their ground during the question time – Well Done!
Well Done Toby – you wowed voters with your speech, and gained over half of the first vote!
The split vote… what to do!?
Well done to both Tilly and Jessica who created a stir with their double draw in voting!
The final three, ‘Good to be Green Party’ ‘Blah Blah Party’ and ‘Banana Party’!
A final well done to all of Class 2, who took their time to vote and cheer on their favorite party!
That’s all for now , I can’t wait to see what our new Health and Safety Counselors get up to!
Miss Breckon and Class 2 🙂
