School Council – School Vote – School Charity
In recent weeks the School Council have been talking to their classes about nominating and supporting a charity for the school to raise money for over the next year.
The School Council members came up with a list of charities which they have further researched - teachers were also asked for their suggestions. The list had nine different charities; voting slips were designed and made by the council and a secret ballot was held where each person in every class was given a slip to choose one charity.
The School Council learnt a lot about the voting process and they passed this information on to their classes explaining that there was only one vote and, if more than one ‘X’ was marked on a voting slip it would be cancelled.
The School Council members brought their classes voting slips to a meeting where they were counted and re-counted to double check the results.
The results were then announced in a ‘Happy Assembly’ and we are pleased to say that our nominated school charity for this year will be ‘Cancer Research’.
We look forward as a school to raising money to support this very worthwhile cause over the next few months.
Thankyou to the School Council and thankyou everyone for voting and supporting.
Mrs Kirstie White
School Council Leader
