Only one week into the new school year, and already excitement has been brewing at Mengham Junior School ahead of the much anticipated School Learning Council elections. At Mengham we know how important it is for the children to understand and be able to apply the core British Values, in this case 'democracy' and 'the rule of law'. Children from all year groups have been campaigning for their classmates' votes in the most spectacular ways. In an incredible display of confidence, campaigns have included confetti, home-made cakes and impressive banners and flags. The all important vote took place in September, where all of the children were invited to post their selected candidate's name into the ballot box at the polling station.
Votes were counted and the winners announced in a special assembly. Miss Slade looks forward to welcoming her brand new School Learning Councillors in their first meeting, where they will begin voicing their classmates' ideas and opinions and organising our first whole school event.
