Every year, children at Almond Hill vote for their Prime Minister and government. Children in Year 6 are invited to form ‘parties’ and canvas children for their votes.
Each party has to come up with a school, local, national and international pledge that they promise to fulfil through the year.
The Loyal Legends
Prime Minister : Tom
Deputy Prime Minister : Joseph
Other Members : Anthony, Ruby, Joseph, Harry, Henry and River.
Pledge 1 - Charity
Our first pledge is to hold a book sale to raise money for charity. Any money raised will go to Children in Need and planting trees.
Pledge 2 - School
We are going to run several different clubs at lunchtime. These will include dodgeball, cricket and football. We will be looking for volunteers to help with this.
Pledge 3 - Students
We will be running a quiz and a treasure hunt for children.
Pledge 4 - Community
With half of the money raised from the book sale we will plant some trees in Stevenage, including the school grounds.
General Elections 2020
The results are in…
All political parties received a large number of votes during the election, but as the week went on one particular party pulled in front and were our clear winners. It is with great pleasure that we introduce you to our new Almond Hill School Government – The Loyal Legends. Tom (Prime Minister), Joseph, Anthony, Ruby, Harry, Henry and River are very happy with the result and ‘can’t wait’ to start their new roles. It is a great privilege for our year 6’s to form political parties and take on this important role in our school and we are very proud of all parties for their involvement. Well done to the Loyal Legends!
Last Friday all the children took part in Question Time, where they had the opportunity to put their questions to each party regarding their pledges. Children in all classes got involved on our Teams session and asked some fantastic, well thought out questions. The party leaders answered confidently and showed great leadership. We are always proud of how the school organises the elections but it is particularly difficult this year with the restrictions in place, well done to everyone involved. We look forward to introducing you to our new government soon.
Children in Year 6 have been busy forming their political parties and deciding their pledges for the coming year. This week they will be talking to the rest of their school (via Teams) about their plans should they be elected in to Government. You can see the posters they have designed here. Each child in our school gets to vote for who they want to represent them on the school committee.
