Let Voting Commence

Let Voting Commence

Pupils at St John’s have been getting involved in the democratic process to mark the General Election.

Class 3 in the Glen have been learning the basics about the General Election and the school have made a travelling polling station. Throughout Election Day, this has visited staff and pupils around school to ask them to role-play voting.

There has been no focus on political parties and what they stand for, the aim has been to teach the young people the basics of voting and to give the experience of placing an x in a box to make a choice and vote.
