STUDENT COUNCIL ELECTION DECEMBER 2016
On 9th December 2016 we held a whole School Election for the election of this year’s class representatives for our Student Council. The whole Election process was undertaken in the format of a proper local Council Election. This was specifically to teach our pupils about democracy and the right to vote and also the legal formalities and requirements of an Election.
The Student Council Election was held in the School Hall which was laid out as a Polling Station for the day using the polling booths and Ballot boxes from the Wrexham Council Electoral Team. Polling cards and ballot papers were produced within the School and a secret ballot/vote was ensured through the issue of the ballot papers at the Polling station, the use of the Polling booth to vote and the placement of the ballot paper in the official ballot boxes.
Members of the existing Student Council organised and ran the whole day and conducted themselves superbly as classes came to the Hall to vote for their chosen representative. Pupils organised each Polling station themselves and also did the official count for each ballot box used during the election. This was all done very efficiently and in a professional manner.
Invited guests came along for the Declaration of Results session in the afternoon which included His Worship the Mayor Cllr John Pritchard, Mr Dave Hughes, Chair of Governor’s and Mr Harrison, Headteacher. Both the guests and pupils were involved in declaring the results of the votes.
We also welcomed representatives from Borras Community Primary School and they all enjoyed their visit to see how our election process works.
The day was an outstanding success and everyone involved displayed a highly professional approach to the whole process demonstrating an excellent example of good practice in organising a whole School Election.
Friday 2nd March
School is open as normal to all students and we will monitor the situation throughout the day. Please take care on the roads and pavements surrounding the school as there is lots of ice. For the safety of our staff and students please drop students outside the school gates wherever possible.
If at any stage a decision is made to close the school the information will be put onto the WCBC School information pages by the Headteacher as soon as the school site has been inspected and information is available – http://wrexham.gov.uk/english/education/school_status.cfm
If anything changes parents will be kept up to date throughout the day via text updates and information will be made available on the schools Twitter account and the school website.
We politely ask that you please check for online updates before calling the school directly for information.
Thank you for your support.
