Mock Election 2019
The 12th of December 2019 was a big day in our country's history. As the nation goes to the polls, we thought our students should have an opportunity to participate in the process of selecting our next parliament.
Students had some assemblies on our representative democracy and were given an outline of our political parties and how they fit into the political spectrum. Students had a chance to talk about the issues they felt mattered to them and their families. More discussions about party manifestos have taken place in their registration and lesson times. Hopefully, our students discussed the election at home with their parents and families as well.
On the 12th of December, our Sixth form centre became a polling station and with our sixth form volunteers, all our students were given the opportunity to vote.
A local journalist, Hannah Corfield, from Honiton Nub News interviewed our Year 11s for our 1st ever live-feed on their Facebook page. Our students clearly articulated their views. As you would expect they really represented the wide views of our community. They were all very keen to vote in the next election!
The count was efficiently carried out and the results as followed were announced at 12:55 pm.
