Today, pupils at Shevington High School have replicated the National Elections today by holding their own General Election ballot in school during their break and lunchtime.
Over the past few weeks, the key policies from all key parties have been taught across school in themed assemblies led by ‘political ambassadors’ in Year 11 and also in form time. Shevington High School students have even looked at the plight of the suffragettes and the importance of registering to vote and placing that cross on the ballet paper. Earlier in the week, on Monday, several representatives from Year 10 and Year 11 attended the Youth Hustings in Wigan and met the candidates battling for the seat, including current Wigan MP Lisa Nandy.
Today, students have set up the hall as a polling station and queued to register for their ballot paper before enthusiastically casting their votes and placing it in a ballet box. Some were even willing to share their reasons for their vote choices on video.
Voting closed at 2pm and out of 629 votes cast the results are as following:
Conservatives – 123
Labour – 348
Liberal Democrats – 73
Green Party – 51
Brexit – 34
A victory here at school for Labour today and we will await to see how this will compare to national results…! ... See MoreSee Less
