Election Fever Hits RHS
As the country gears up for going to the polls today, students at Rastrick have been taking part in their own General Election.
As part of our Pastoral Curriculum, students from across the school have been learning about democracy as part of our British Values. We’ve learnt about how the election process is conducted, and who can stand for election, as well as the manifestos from each of the parties standing for election today.
The students have also had the opportunity to learn about fun election facts, such as the number of dogs you are legally allowed to take to vote with you, and where the most obscure polling stations are in the country.
This work has culminated in our very own General Election, which we have held in form time this morning. Student Leaders will be counting the votes throughout the day, and we will be able to announce who we have elected as a school tomorrow. Will we have voted for the same party as the country? Watch this space for results tomorrow!
