Mawsley Pupils’ Parliament 2019
Once again, our Mawsley Pupils’ Parliament kicked off its activity with voting for class representatives at the end of September.
Since then, Pupils’ Parliament have been meeting weekly to discuss the roles within our Parliament structure and future events. After careful consideration, five of our Pupils’ Parliament representatives, opted to put themselves forward for the responsible and prestigious role of Prime Minister.
The children, who chose to stand for election, worked hard preparing fantastically insightful speeches, which were delivered to the whole school during this Wednesday’s assembly. The standard of this year’s speeches was outstanding and I am immensely proud of the courage and determination that the candidates showed in making their opinions and vision heard.
Afterwards, all children in the school exercised their democratic right to vote for their Prime Minister – they even had lifelike ballot slips!
I am delighted to announce that Hettie was elected Prime Minister and Venus as Deputy Prime Minister.
The work of our Pupils’ Parliament starts immediately, as UK Parliament week starts as soon as we return from the Half Term break. A colouring competition has been planned, so watch out on Facebook and online for details! Pupil’s Parliament will also be selling poppies towards the end of that week in readiness for our annual Act of Remembrance.
Have a fantastic break everyone!
