Mock Election in our Academy
Thursday 10 August 2017
As a tradition of our academy we had our mock elections just before the General Election. The mock election was organised to help our students to understand the different political parties and electoral system in the United Kingdom. The engagement by the students and discussions that took place were fantastic.
Election slips were given to students, and they had the chance to vote in their learning family time. In the same day, the students counted up the results. Once the results were shared with the whole school, students discussed how it compared to the actual results and why it’s important to vote.
The mock election was a true success throughout the academy.
