We have had a great start to Year 3! To start our term, we have been learning about how the government works and how the democratic process of voting for a Prime Minister in an election works.
Using this knowledge, we all created some impressive speeches of why we should be the school council representative for our class (just like people in government have to do if they want to be Prime Minister). Those of us who wanted to (and were brave enough to) stood for election and delivered our speeches to the rest of the class on Wednesday.
Today Holy Trinity had its own polling station in the dance studio. Both classes took their turn at going along. We had to take our polling card, and when we got there we were given a ballot paper. The ballot paper had the candidates from our class.
We went into the booth to vote for the person we wanted to represent our class, based on the speeches they delivered earlier in the week. We did it this way so that it was a secret vote.
Finally, we put our ballot paper with our vote on into the ballot box. These will be counted and the person with the most votes will be our school council representative.
We cannot wait to find out during Monday's worship who is going to be representing our class for the year!
