Democracy in Action at Robert Hitcham's

This afternnon saw the final part of our school election campaign. All of the children in Key Stage 2 (7 classes) came to the hall to hear final speeches from the party leaders. Each child was given a ballot paper and went into one of the voting booths. Their ballot papers then went into the ballot box.

The results of the election:

Theo Bimson (Sport 4 All) 48 votes

Freddy Legg (Animal Party) 84 votes

Jessie Evans (Kids R Us) 20 votes

Adam Scott (Healthy Living ) 9 votes

Ella Beal (Eco Kings) 35 votes

The winner was the Animal Party. However, they did not quite get an overall majority (more than 50% of the votes). Perhaps Freddy needs to talk to one of the other parties so that agreements can be made?
