Student General Election

Some students show a talent for public speaking and politics.

Over the next week, the students below will be canvassing support for policies advocated by the main parties on a national level – though with one independent candidate too.

There will be a whole-school student vote on the Wednesday with results announced on the Thursday.

It’s all about raising awareness, developing participation, enhancing a student voice…
