School Council Elections 2018

Election fever hit Kells Lane as annual voting for our school student councillors took place this week.

Many children in Year 5 had written very persuasive letters of application to the current school council, who had the very difficult job of shortlisting the 8 candidates.  Those who were successfully shortlisted gave their election speeches on Tuesday.

All the children who took part in the elections this week were an absolute credit to themselves, the school and their classes. Their speeches were superb and all candidates spoke clearly and confidently in assembly to the rest of the pupils and staff.

Children from Year 1 to Year 5 had the opportunity to vote – marking choices on their ballot paper and posting it in the ballot box.  The votes were counted and checked by the current student councillors and Mrs Whistler.  It was a very close run election race.  However, we do now have our School Council representatives for the next academic year.

Congratulations to the following children:

Edith A

Oliver F

Joseph G

Eva J
